The course  introduces participants to the artistic, spiritual, historical and theological underpinning of icon painting within context. It provides participants with an opportunity to engage practically in the techniques and processes used by icon painters, as they create icon paintings and explore creative possibilities with new skills and techniques.

        

Objectives:

  • To respond to the increasing need for an imaginative, practical and creative input which allows participants a unique and personal input in their own art work.
  • To allow other artists the opportunity to become involved in this cultural education experience.
  • To explore the notion of religious iconography from an eastern orthodox perspective.
  • To introduce participants to the practical process and skills needed to paint and understand icons and iconography.
  • To incorporate a spiritual/meditative dimension as the creation of art work develops.
