MEET & GREET

Join us to catch up with other iconographers, artists, novices, family and friends.

The purpose of icons is three-fold:

 

To create reverence in worship

To instruct those who are unable to read

To serve as an existential link between the worshipper and God

ICON

Latin, from Greek eikōn, from eikenai to resemble

No one has seen God at any time
John 1:18

Of old, God was never depicted. Now, however, when God is seen, clothed in flesh and conversing with man, I make an image of God, of the God whom I can see. I do not worship matter. I worship the God of matter who became matter for my sake …. to work out my salvation through matter.
St John of Damascus
