You may bring your own food to cook (using the Center’s kitchen), go out to restaurants in the area, or place lunch orders that will be delivered. Other Vegan options for lunch and dinner will be available for purchase.
First and second-time students will write the Archangels Michael and Gabriel.
The icon assigned to intermediate students will be the icon of St. John the Forerunner. Intermediate students will be expected to complete preliminary work on their own in advance of the workshop: Purchase an 11 x 14 board directly from Pandora, gold leaf and bole. Transfer the sketch to the board, paint lines, complete gilding.
We begin each day with prayer and will have a selection of liturgical music playing throughout the workshop. We strive to keep the atmosphere peaceful and open for prayer, meditation and reflection so we ask the chatting be kept to a minimum.
For those interested in attending services, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Grand Rapids will be having Wednesday evening
