Sacred Art Workshops at Conception Abbey

Conception Abbey, a lovely monastery just 45 min. north of St. Joseph, is hosting two sacred art workshops in August: Manuscript Illumination, August 9-15, and Early Byzantine Iconography, August 23-29. I attended the Manuscript Illumination workshop last summer and thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructor, Jed Gibbons, was excellent. The Early Byzantine Iconography workshop will be quite good as well- it's being taught by the founder of the Prosopon School of Iconography, Master Iconographer Vladislov Andreyev. These are unique opportunities to study traditional painting techniques close by in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Hope to see you there!
