An icon painting workshop in the Byzantine-Russian tradition will be held July 6-11 in Santa Fe.  The Prosopon School of Iconology introduces students to the practice and theory of the ancient Christian art of icon-writing in the Byzantine-Russian tradition.

During 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 background as well as advanced artists, workshop coordinator Elizabeth Bezzerides said.  The task is accomplished through refinement of artistic nuance and attention to the iconographic canon and principles, rather than simply “copying.”

The course, as organized by the Prosopon School of Iconology, represents the study of the ancient ‘floating’ technique of icon painting in the Byzantine-Russian tradition, which reached its height in the 15th and early 16th centuries.

Students will become acquainted with the preparation of an icon board, learn gold leaf application by the bole method, study the horizontal “floating” technique of egg tempera and will be instructed how to finish the icon with boiled linseed oil.
