Bradenton Florida Icon Class
Icon Classes at Saints Peter & Paul Church, Bradenton, Florida
The Icon class at the Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Bradenton, Florida last weekend was blessed in many ways. It was beautiful, balmy weather and a beautiful Church and grounds to enjoy.
We worked each day from 9-12 then had a picnic lunch outside on the bridge separating the Church from the Education Center. Saints Peter and Paul Church has beautiful contemporary art work inside the church as well as wonderful statues situated around the church property.
The Lord is My Shepherd
The Twenty Third Psalm
Each day we prayed together the Twenty Third Psalm as we meditated on the Good Shepherd Icon we were painting. Even just the beginning of the psalm was so inspiring for us:
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul. He guides me in straight paths for His name sake.”
Several people commented at the end of the workshop that they had experienced God’s peace as they were able to leave their daily cares behind and just focus on the creation of their Icon for two and a half days.
The Joy of Icon Writing
Icon writing is a pure joy. I love teaching people to write Icons because they truly become transformed through the process. Where else can you meet new friends who love painting and praying? Come join us sometime! Here’s a link to my website with 2019 classes.
There will be another Icon writing workshop in Florida, March 7-9 at the Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota Florida. Email Christine if you’d like to attend.
