Painting an icon can be more than just creating a pretty picture; it’s an opportunity to encounter angels or saints, or other religious figures. And a chance to have a divine interaction through art has arrived.
Saint Dimitri Orthodox Church is coordinating the Icon Painting Workshop held July 14-19 at the Prosopon School of Arts and Iconology, located in the College of Santa Fe.
The instructor of the workshop will be the Rev. Medfodii, who has been studying the art of icon painting with the school’s founder, Vladislav Andreyev, for more than 17 years.
