Summer School of Liturgical Music (SSLM) 2018
Jul 15 – Jul 28 all-day
Summer School of Liturgical Music (SSLM) 2018 @ Holy Trinity Monastery

Welcome to the Summer School of Liturgical Music (SSLM)! We have been educating Orthodox choir conductors, singers and readers since 1992. The intense program takes place each summer in Jordanville, New York, on the territory of Holy Trinity Monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. The Core Program leading to certification in Russian liturgical music (with specializations in conducting and singing on kliros) consists of six weeks of intense study spread out over three summers (two weeks each).  Students not seeking certification are welcome to attend as well, whether for one year or more, with an Individual Study plan worked out in consultation with the SSLM administration. The school also runs a Pastoral Bridge Program to meet the curricular needs of students from the Pastoral School of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America (ROCOR).  Since 2015, we have also offered a Continuing Education Program for our alumni. SSLM is accredited by the Board of Regents of the State University of New York.

We all find ourselves interacting with people in crisis, whether it’s someone you know or a stranger out in the community. This training will help you understand individuals experiencing trauma, mental health issues and homelessness and how to safely and effectively respond with confidence and compassion.

Topics include understanding mental illness, personality disorders and addiction, and basic crisis communication skills. -see below for more details about the training.

The training will be followed by a light dinner. We hope you will join us.

2018 Prosopon School of Iconography: Clinton, MA
Aug 6 – Aug 11 all-day
2018 Prosopon School of Iconography: Clinton, MA @ Museum of Russian Icons

Vladislav Andrejev has been teaching iconography since 1985, during which time thousands of his students have been introduced to the ancient art of icon writing. Over the years, Vladislav’s iconographic technique and teaching method developed into a distinct school of painting and interpretation. The Museum of Russian Icons is hosting the renowned Prosopon School of Iconology for an intensive six­ day course on icon writing. Working with Prosopon faculty, participants will study the techniques of painting icons, including transferring of the image, applying the gold leaf, and the use of egg tempera paint. Students will use natural materials and the traditional multi­step process to paint their own icons of Archangel Michael. Previous students can make special arrangements with the instructor to paint another subject for their icon workshop. Throughout the course, students will be introduced to iconology, iconic symbolism, and the theological and philosophical basis of each step. No previous artistic experience is required. The course takes place in the Museum’s Auditorium.

Please note that formal instruction ends each day at 4:00 PM, but students may need to spend additional time in the evenings to complete the lesson and be prepared for the next day. The Museum will open each day at 8:30 am and close to students at 5:00 PM sharp.

The tuition includes 36 hours of instruction over six days, and includes all materials including the board, pigments, and gold leaf. 50% deposit is required to reserve your space.
