Icon Painting Class at Mount Calvary Monastery, Santa Barbara, CA
November 3-6, 2020
Tuesday evening though Friday lunch
Christine demonstrates each step of the Icon writing process as well as giving important historical and technical information for the serious student. If you have written Icons before and have a particular area of interest, please email Christine well in advance in order to receive individual tuition.
Icon writing is a spiritual discipline, combining prayer and painting. We are painting the Christ Pantocrator for this class. Each participant will have their own Icon painted using egg tempera with gold leaf gilding.You do not have to be an artist to write a beautiful Icon. You will learn step by step and Christine will demonstrate and help students individually to paint using egg tempera and gold leaf gilding. If you have taken Icon class with Christine before, or are experienced in Icon painting, and want to do a different Icon, contact Christine at least two weeks before class to arrange details.
