To All Students in Icon Class,
Thank you so much for devoting your time and energy to learning about and counting to develop your skill in iconography.
Please remember that you are all very welcome to continue your studies with private/group studio sessions. Information about the summer egg tempera workshops are posted.
It was a delight to work with ALL of you! I am already looking forward to coming back together for icon class in 2018! A schedule for the 2018 session will be posted in August 2017. May your work continue in the blessings of Truth~
“To make an icon, one must first come to a dispassionateness, a purity, so that the Saint can guide every stroke of the painting. It is all to be pure prayer. One cannot paint a Saint except if he live the same kind of life as the Saint. There needs to be technique, method, but neither too much nor too little. Technique can never produce a true icon.” Chapter 7, from The Monk’s of Mount Athos- A Western Monk’s Extraordinary Spiritual Journey on Eastern Ground.
Wishing you and your families a Pascha filled with the brightness of light and love!
