The Prosopon School of Iconography will offer an icon workshop July 17 through 22 at Broom Tree Retreat Center in Irene, S.D.
No artistic talent or previous painting experience is required for the six-day workshop presented by the Diocese of Sioux Falls at its newly opened retreat center. The center is located one hour southwest of Sioux Falls on 240 acres of prairie land with a wooded creek and walking trails. Meals are prepared and served on site, and daily Mass will be celebrated.
The workshop explores the ancient floating technique of icon painting in the Byzantine-Russian tradition. Participants will take home a completed icon. Tuition is $565, which includes instruction and materials. Accommodations, including a single room and three meals per day, cost $50 per day.
