Iconographer: Fr. Igumen Mefodii (of the Prosopon School)

Students will create icons using ancient techniques of painting and floating with egg tempera, with natural materials: carved wooden 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.

Previous “artistic” experience is not necessary since icon writing is as much a contemplative form of prayer as an ascetic discipline. The workshop will consist of six full-day sessions during which each student will complete an icon. Students will receive step-by-step instructions and all necessary materials to paint/write the icon of
Archangel Michael. Students who have attended previous workshops will be assigned an icon appropriate to their experience or they can contact Fr. Mefodii in advance
to discuss options.    Fr. Mefodii, instructor, 434-589-8530, sketestmaximos@embarqmail.com
