More than a decorative element, color plays a very important role in Byzantine iconography, which is one of the oldest art forms to survive unchanged for the past 2,000 years. Students are introduced to both the practical and the theoretical part of the iconographic tradition (iconology). You’ll use natural materials: wood panels gessoed with naturally ground, genuine gold leaf and egg tempera made from natural pigments. You’ll learn the language of light, color, image and symbol, with the iconic symbolism explained alongside the technical instruction.

Prerequisite: Open for beginners as well as more experienced icon painters.

Fee: $265 member, $315 non-member.


Thu, May 21, 28, June 4, 11, 18, 1-4 p.m.

Instructor: Laurence Pierson
