Learn to Paint Icons with Online Icon Painting Classes taught by Christine Hales

Each online Icon painting  class is a self contained unit where a particular aspect of icon writing is applied to the icon of a saint.  Icon writing is visual theology that is carried out with particular attention to the teachings of the church as well as to artistic technique.

These online icon painting classes are for those who wish to learn more about Icons, their place in the history of the church and in our prayer lives.  You do not need to be an artist to learn to paint Icons!  Each step is demonstrated and students may refer back to the recorded sessions as they work.  All Classes are taught using egg tempera on gessoed icon boards.  Practice watercolor paper and Bristol board are also used for studies and practice.

Icon Painting Class 101: Color Mixing with The Greek Key

Using a limited palette students  learn how to mix their own egg tempera paints and gain confidence in color mixing for icon painting.

This simple palette is the basis of many beautiful and successful icons.  

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 of the 8 Sessions  demonstrates each step of the icon painting process.

Students have access to the videos in order to watch and practice at their convenience.

This class is taught on Zoom and the sessions are available on the Thinkific learning platform.  You will need a computer, and a free Thinkific account.

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.

Tuition:  $125
