Icon painting workshop offered July 9-14

-A A +A

An opportunity to participate in an icon painting workshop in the Byzantine-Russian tradition will be offered July 9-14 in Santa Fe.
The Prosopon School of Iconology, founded by Vladislav Andrejev, introduces the practice and theory of the ancient Christian art of icon-writing in the Byzantine-Russian tradition.
In the intensive, “hands-on” workshop, each participant will paint an icon using traditional techniques and materials.
The workshop is accessible to those with no art training or background, as well as previous students of iconography, artists and persons with art training, according to workshop coordinator Elizabeth Bezzerides.
In 12 three-hour sessions, students will be shown the many steps in icon painting, for example: in antiquity, only natural materials are used; wood panels gessoed with natural ground; genuine gold leaf; egg tempera using ground pigments; and linseed oil finish.  
Instruction will be personalized as needed and everyone should be able to take their completed icon at the end of the workshop. Beginning students will work on the icon of Archangel Michael.
Students are introduced to iconology, which is both the practical and the theoretical part of the iconography.
