During this retreat students will pray, study and learn the traditional method of egg-tempera icon writing/painting. Each participant learns about the various natural materials, practices the techniques and spiritual disciplines for creating a traditional icon and takes home a completed project. All materials are included
in the tuition, and the schedule is flexible for commuters with work and families. The retreat is open to all and especially welcomes first-time icon writers and
those without artistic training. Enrollment is strictly limited to 20 participants. A deposit of $150.00 is required and deducted from the total due.
Fr. Damian Higgins is Abbot of Holy Transfiguration Monastery in California and has created icons for homes and churches around the world, including the Rock Hill Oratory.
