A beginning/intermediate iconography course will be held in the iconographer’s studio, in Gaithersburg, Maryland (Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area). Click here for a flyer with more information. To register, contact us by email or by phone . Hurry, registration for the class is limited, and the deadline for registering (April 5) is fast approaching.
ABOUT THE COURSE: This course will introduce students to Byzantine iconography. It is intended for beginners and those on an intermediate level. Over the three days, we will create a half-figure icon (St. Nino, Apostle to Georgia) in egg tempera. Step-by-step instruction will be provided. No gilding will be involved.
OPEN FRIDAYS. The studio has an Open Friday program, for students who have the ability to paint alone but run into questions as they work. Come sometime between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., bringing with you the icon you are working on and your own supplies. If you intend to start a new one, bring any requisite materials along with your ideas. As you work on the icon Colette and fellow students will be available for advice, direction, and discussion. This is also a chance for members to stay abreast of developments in iconography and the Orthodox world. Cost is $20 per person. Come and join the fellowship. Contact us to RSVP (max. six workstations).
Traditional, one-on-one lessons are always available through private arrangement.
