Painting icons or writing an icon, is like a journey through time 2000 years back in history all the way to the time of Byzantium, at the same time as we make an inner journey within ourselves. Monasteries and other schools within the church have preserved this stylistic and symbolic art form alive in a living diversity that touches us even today.
Sign up for a course and experience the meditative feeling and satisfaction of painting your own icon.
Courses for children
We paint with egg tempera colours. Children can paint motifs from Byzantine iconography. We learn how to base wooden boards with chalk, prepare egg yolks, mix the colours, add base colours and learn to layer.
Courses for adults.
Both for experienced painters and beginners. We paint icons with egg tempera colors, learn to draw motifs, lay gold leaf and prepare wooden boards with fabric and chalk.
