Before "icon" meant a double-clickable series of pictures cluttering your computer screen, the term primarily referred to concrete images standing in churchs, temples and other religious structures the world over. New Orleans native Raymond Calvert brings his years of research and experience in the field of icon painting to St. Augustine's Episcopal Church. Co-sponsored by St. James Center for Spiritual Formation, Calvert will teach a class addressing the introduction, explanation, meditation, and mechanics of icon painting, appropriate for beginner, intermediate, and advanced learners--no prior knowledge necessary. The seven-part series will run Saturdays from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm at 3412 Haring Road. $300 for the entire series; $50 non-refundable deposit due by August 31. (225) 387-5141 ext. 222.
