* Icon Workshop and Talk – Sat, Mar 25, 2017

This is because the icon artist, who works within a specific framework, visually describes Christian theology and prayer through the “words” of shape and color. This workshop includes a lecture on the spirituality of icons, and a hands-on icon drawing of an icon. No drawing experience necessary. Price: $25 – Date: Saturday, March 25th  Time: 9:00 a.m. – noon at the NEW Dominican Center Art Room at Dominican Sisters house at Mission San Jose, Fremont.
