Make time and space for yourself; let go of tension, thoughts, distractions for a day, and settle your mind and emotions by painting a sacred image.

I invite you to spend this time re-connecting with deeper parts of yourself in the creative process, while learning the ancient art of egg tempera painting.

While the word “icon” means “image” in Greek, an icon is more a symbol that speaks directly through our senses and produces certain responses within.

The uniqueness of this course is that the process of looking at and painting sacred images attempts to calm the mind, still emotions and evoke a meditative state.

The technical part of the course will cover the basic techniques of icon painting: transferring the image and applying gold leaf, mixing egg yolk emulsion, the “little lake” and brush stroke techniques, transparent layering, detailing.
No previous experience required.

You will finish the course with a completed icon.
