Icon Painting Classes for 2020-2021

On Line Icon Painting Classes

As this Icon School unfolds and develops, new Pre Recorded Icon Writing Classes will be available for purchase.

Improve Your Painting and Drawing Skills

Icon painting classes are a way of helping us to engage with God’s work in a visual and meaningful way.  You can use this class to simply watch and learn, or paint along with it.  Each session will be recorded so that it can be played back later.

Each step of writing the icon will be demonstrated and a recording of each class will be provided for each student to review.

These classes are designed for absolute beginners but will be enjoyed also by those more experienced. Sometimes even advanced iconographers can benefit from going back to basics and re -learning and getting rid of old habits, as well as being introduced to new materials and techniques.

ADVENT ONLINE ICON PAINTING CLASS

NOVEMBER  11-14, 2020

Morning Session 9am-10:30 Am         Afternoon Session 2PM-3:30PM

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 9AM-10:30 AM and  2:00-3:30PM   Eastern Time

For this class, we will meet for a morning session and an afternoon session for each of the four days. Students are free to use the intervening time to paint their icon, or rest, etc.

You may wish to just watch, take notes, or paint along with the instructor.  The classes will be recorded and posted later on you tube so you can replay them and follow along that way also.

There will be demonstrations for each class and ample time for students to practice on their own before the next session.

This class we will paint an Icon of the Virgin and Child using egg tempera paint and gold leaf gilding for the halos.

You will learn how to begin an Icon, transfer the drawing to the Icon board, and gain an understanding of how to use the traditional materials used in Icon writing.

By the end of this course you will have your own Icon of the Blessed Mother for Advent this year. And your Icon writing knowledge and skills will be vastly increased!!

There is a Face Book Page, for students only, where you can post your works in progress, questions, and ask for comments or suggestions.

This is a unique opportunity to learn Icon painting online. You can do it in your own time, at your own pace.  Somethings take more time than others, and I think this process with be a big help to people just beginning or to more advanced painters who want time to make corrections in their work.

The Class Schedule is as follows:  Wednesday, 9:00-10:30am EST, 2:00Pm-3:30PM: Thursday, 9:00AM-10:30AM, 2:00PM-3:30PM: Friday, 9:00AM-10:30 AM, 2:00PM-3:30PM: Saturday, 9:00-10:30AM, 2:00-3:30PM.

COMMENTS from Christine’s Students:

“Christine is a gentle, thorough teacher. Her knowledge of Icons and painting is vast and she is able to communicate her experience in a way that is easily understood.  This was one of the best classes I have ever had!”  Karen G.

“I’ve learned more from Christine’s Icon class about art and Icons than I learned in College! She is able to infuse her subject with enthusiasm and grace while also communicating knowledge and skill.  I highly recommend her class to anyone with a desire to learn more about Icons and how to paint them.” Susan P.

” I learned things about Icons that I never knew.  Christine’s spiritual approach to icon writing has inspired me to take this knowledge back to my church for Christian education classes”.  Peter S.
