Iconographer Phil Zimmerman will lead an retreat Dec. 3-9 at the Franciscan Spirituality Center, 920 Market St.
Zimmerman will lead participants step-by-step through the process of painting a Byzantine-style icon of St. Simeon holding the Christ Child. The retreat is open to people of all faith backgrounds, and no artistic experience is necessary.
All supplies — including paints, boards, brushes, gold leaf and varnish — will be included. This retreat is limited to 25 participants. Cost is $625 for a full retreat, which includes all meals and six nights’ stay. Commuters pay $505 and enjoy lunch and supper each day. To register, call 608-791-5295 or go to visit www.fscenter.org.
