“Because humankind is made in the image and likeness of God, there is something divine about the act of painting an icon.” (St Theodore the Studite)

What is Icon Painting?
Icon painting is a meditative, prayerful painting of an image that aims to depict the true inner likeness of Christ, Mary or the saints. Icons express the future unity of the whole of creation and are a visible manifestation of humankind’s spiritual power to redeem creation through beauty and art. By painting an icon we seek to express the Divine nature with which Christ is endowed and the inner spiritual reality which animates the saints.

 

Our icon courses are led by our iconographer Sr Esther. They include:
