We take a lunch break together which gives us a chance to get to know each other.
You will be encouraged to experiment with the technique and colour. Tradition is something dynamic and it is still moving and changing.
Your ideas and contemporary approach are both welcome.
You will still learn basics of the technique and traditional styles of icon painting. Which include:
- composition used in icon painting
- icon styles including Byzantine and Russian
- how to prepare egg yolk binding medium
- make your own paints from dry pigments
- how to work with thin layers
- egg tempera brush work
- dry brush work.
Wednesday classes are perfect for students that would like to make Icon Painting into their regular practice. You will receive support from your teacher but also from the community of other icon painters. You will have a chance to exchange your ideas and experiences. You will become a part of a vibrant arts and crafts community. All welcome.
