      EVENT DETAILS
      Prosopon School Of Iconology-Dmitrii and Tatiana Berestova-Icon Painting

      Students are introduced to the practical and theoretical aspects of icon writing. Interpretations of iconographic symbolism and the theological and anthropological basis of each step of the process are presented in parallel to the technical instruction. By the end of an intensive workshop, the beginner completes writing of an icon. No artistic experience is required of the beginning student. The Prosopon School does not hold the preparation of professional icon writers as its foremost purpose, although such a possibility is not excluded. The main goal of study is rather to cultivate a clearer consciousness of the Image of God according to which man was created. The student is (re)introduced to the teaching of the Church through the language of line, light, and color. Notions are drawn from Scripture, Tradition, and Patristic thought. Through the visual language of the icon, the student may move toward a better vision of the self, the world, and the Divine. By writing an icon, the student works toward the reestablishment of the original untarnished condition of man’s image in a disciplined way." This will be the Intermediate class, Beginners are also welcome. The icon of the Annunciation will be the theme for Advanced students, who have already studied with The Prosopon School. The theme for Beginning and Intermediate students will be offered in class. The Advanced students will be bringing their own boards with the drawing transfered and gilding completed before the class, so the cost for them will be $100 less then for Beginners. They will receive the drawing in advance. Any question please contact Carolyn Rock - artjoycreation@gmail.com .
