  • Introduction to Icon Writing | 84 Main St, Philmont NY (Same building as Family Dollar) | 01/27/2020

    Learn to write icons in the Byzantine tradition using egg tempera and gold leaf.

    All levels of painters are welcome!

    Using natural pigments mixed with the yolk of an egg, egg tempera painting is one of the earliest forms of painting and encompasses many of the classical painting traditions. In addition to learning how to write an icon, you will be learning the classical method of constructing a painting, transferring a drawing, handling of form, light, color and composition.

    A multi-step process, the focus is on spiritual development within the icon writing tradition as well as on artistic development. Known as the spiritual discipline of the mind, heart, and hand, iconography is a continuation of the Russian-Byzantine icon tradition into the twenty-first century.

    Most materials will be provided and are covered in the $0-60 suggested donation for each 3 hour class fee. It is necessary to have purchased one gessoed icon board before class begins. It takes approx. 10 classes to complete one icon.

    Mondays beginning February 10th, 10:00AM-1:00PM
