Summer Greetings! Soon, we will be back into the rhythm of icon classes. I hope your summer has been fruitful!
A new year of teaching is always a gift in looking forward. An interesting quote from my phi beta kappa journal, “Practice anticipates, and seeks to prepare for, what the situation that we hope to perform in may be like…it is our best guess”. The article was exploring the spiritual and spirited side of scholarship and how lessons from the past enter into the meaning of success. I caught attention to it, thought about the potential laying hidden in every icon waiting to be written/painted and how can this apply towards every student’s development. Hard work, effort and risk taking are that which prepares the activation of talent. With hope, the expectation of something desired through faith, can truly continue to be realized that there is always much more ability to be discovered than what ever is realized!
Join me for a lesson in writing icons. All sessions concentrate on technique, along with a spiritual and theological study on the prototype.
