The traditional Byzantine-Russian icon-writing method of the Prosopon School of Iconology, founded by Vladislav Andreyev, is a revival of the 15th-16th century iconography style of Andre Rublev. The Prosopon School empasizes the spiritual aspects of the twenty-one step process of writing the icon.
To view their icons see: www.prosoponschool.org
Students will create icons using ancient techniques of painting and floating with egg tampera, with natural materials: carved wooded boards, pure gold leaf, and finely ground clay and mineral pigments mixed with egg yolk. Fr. Mefodii will emphasize the underlying theology of the icon, both the one upon which we work and the Image (Icon) of God in us.
Iconographer: Fr. Igumen Mefodii (of the Prosopon School)
