Description: Registration and payment in full required by Friday, July 12. The Museum is hosting the renowned Prosopon School of Iconology for an intensive six-day course on icon painting. Working with Prosopon founder Vladislav Andrejev and Prosopon faculty, participants study the techniques of painting icons, including transferring of the image, applying the gold leaf, and the use of egg tempera paint. Students 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 are introduced to iconology, iconic symbolism, and the theological and philosophical basis of each step. No previous artistic experience is required.
