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.
Before the class:
- You must create a free Zoom account: https://zoom.us/freesignup/
- Your Zoom account must use the same name you used in your Registration.
Using the online learning environment
We will be supporting the live sessions with an online learning environment. This is called Thinkific and we will go through how to use this system during class. It will include access to class recordings, homework assignments and handouts. You will receive an invitation to join thinkific- it is a free program for you.
January 19-22 ONLINE ICON CLASS
Four Days of ONLINE ZOOM classes:
Morning Session 9am-10:30 Am Afternoon Session 2PM-3:30PM
This class we will paint an Icon of the The Holy Face, the face of Jesus. We will focus on drawing the features of the Iconographic face.
The first class will be an introduction to the process, history and context of Icon writing. You will also watch a demonstration of how to begin an Icon.
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.
EACH CLASS WILL DEMONSTRATE EACH STEP OF WRITING THE ICON. You will have “homework” that you can do either before the next class or in your own timing. You will be able to email photos of your progress for individual help.
This class will be taught on Zoom. You will need a computer, a free Zoom account, and it’s helpful to have a smart phone or digital camera to share photos of your work in progress with the instructor.
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: Tuesday, 9:00-10:30am EST, 2:00Pm-3:30PM: Wednesday, 9:00AM-10:30AM, 2:00PM-3:30PM: Thursday, 9:00AM-10:30 AM, 2:00PM-3:30PM: Friday, 9:00-10:30AM, 2:00-3:30PM. $125 Tuition

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.
