Byzantine icon painting


About the Course

Students will work from several traditional images of St Nicholas, to analyse elements of classic design in order to produce their own sketch of a shoulder-length bust icon of the Saint. The focus of the class will be on the face, exploring what makes the holy faces powerful, yet calm.

Beginners will be guided step by step to complete their first icon. Continuing students will appreciate the exploration of design & sketching, the opportunity to model a larger than usual face & to tackle the techniques needed to paint beards.
