Angels in Icons
Angels in Icons – God’s messengers! Always a great gift or special Icon to add to your collection or prayer corner. We need lots of angels!! To learn more about Holy Cross Monastery or to register click here.
From the early centuries to today, angels in Icons continue to be an important part of our spiritual lives especially for prayer and contemplation. Egg tempera painting includes prayer and painting of the Saint whose image is depicted. Christine will demonstrate step by step the process of Icon painting. We will paint one of the Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, or Raphael- if you are experienced and wish to paint a different Icon, email Christine with the drawing at least two weeks before class. Beginners, intermediate and advanced students will all benefit and find new insights in this class.
Reflections from past students:
“Christine Hales is a wonderful, loving and patient teacher. Her skills and competencies are great, and her faith inspiring!” SR
“Covered much in a short period of time. Instruction was such that even a complete novice as myself was able to write a first Icon, learning important basics, and even more advanced aspects of Icon writing.” PJ
