Join us on this six-day intensive course where we will captivate you in the art of the Byzantium painting technique. The subject of the icon of “Mother of God” (at left), will come alive before you as the visiting master iconographer and expert instructor, Theodoros Papadopoulos, guides you, step by step, through the ancient techniques of Byzantine Iconography.
The techniques of painting will be taught in a clear and concrete way enabling the students to apply what they have learnt once the workshop is completed. Great emphasis is placed on the student acquiring “hands-on”experience, in order to be able to comprehend and put into practice the techniques Byzantine icon painting requires. From the very beginning to the completion of the course, every student will work on his or her painting with assistance by the instructor.
The courses will be in daily basis from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
