Once again, Saint Francis Retreat House is happy to offer an Icon Writing Retreat with iconographer Jody Cole.  This is the 9th summer this retreat is being held and it has been sold out each year.  Participants learn the techniques of icon painting and will leave here with a beautiful icon, a work of their own hands.   Students will have the choice of two subjects to paint:  Saint Nicholas the Wonder worker or Saint George and the Dragon.   This week-long workshop is designed for both beginners and intermediate students. Even if you have not had a paint brush in your hand since elementary school, we guarantee you will surprise yourself with the beautiful image you will create under Jody’s instruction.  The 5-night workshop begins on Sunday evening with supper at 6:00pm and concludes on Friday with lunch.  Check-in time is 4:00pm to 6:00pm on Sunday.  Accommodations are in private rooms with private baths.  Offering:  $485.00.  Included in the cost are all meals, drink service throughout the day, and all materials and art supplies needed to produce an icon.  For further information please call the retreat house at 610-258-3053.
