Introduction to Icons with Debra Korluka – Nov 3, 2018 Date Change!

According to Orthodox teaching, an icon is a door, pointing us to something beyond itself.  Perhaps you would like to explore  iconography as a spiritual practice. Join us as iconographer Debra Korluka shares with us the techniques, theology and spirituality of icons.

The art form in a Holy icon is intended to be an abstraction which produces a spiritual art across countries and generations which always remains constant, consistent and prescribed by canon rule.  The primary purpose of a Holy icon is to enable a face-to-face encounter with a holy person or to make present a scared event. The Divine Iconographer is the Holy Spirit. Nothing can be accomplished without the grace of the Holy Spirit. By coming into deeper communion with God through prayer and practice, the prayerful art form of the icon can cultivate spiritual awareness calling us to become one in God’s truth. The Holy Face of Christ, or also called The Icon Not Painted By Human Hands will be the focus of our experience in the workshop. We welcome you to experience icons as a vehicle of witness and ministry.
