This retreat will be held in as close to a scriptorium atmosphere as possible. We will start with prayer, have prayer at noon-day, and end the workday with prayer. We pray especially that the Holy Spirit will work through our hands to help us depict the holy images. Technique and icon lore will be covered and questions welcomed from the participants. Otherwise we will work in silence.
There will also be time for rest and recreation.

A word from our instructor, Melissa Moss:
I’ve been interested in the visual arts all my life, it seems. I have an undergraduate degree in “art” (painting) and a graduate degree in art history. I became a potter and worked at that, and taught, for 25 + years. I’d always been enamored of icons but could find no one to teach me until I moved to North Carolina ten years ago. Lo and behold, there were two teachers who come to Kanuga each year, and I’ve been studying with them – and elsewhere – ever since. I write both egg-tempera and acrylic icons.
Icons allow me to combine my love of art with my love of Christianity with my love of meditation. And I’m really excited about sharing the joy of icons at Lake Logan!
