Church of the Redeemer, Sarasota Icon Workshop  March 9,&10 2018

Recently I taught an Icon Writing workshop at the Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota Florida.  The popular and busy Church has an Icon over the altar and several smaller Icons throughout the church.

Friday night was our first  session and we also met all day Saturday .  It was a short time to accomplish creating an Icon.  Each student transferred their drawings of Saint Francis to a gessoed board, and learned about the deep layers of pure color they were applying.

We prayed the Saint Francis Peace prayer before each session.  Each student came with an art background of some kind.  They were able to apply some of their skills to painting with egg tempera- an ancient painting technique.

 

After lunch, we gilded the halo with 23k gold leaf.

Finishing  just before the 5:30 healing service at Church of the Redeemer.  The class  was able to bring our finished Icons to be blessed by Father Fred Robinson on the altar during the service!
