Our Lady of the Mountains Icon Class for Spring 2020

February 4 @ 4:00 pm - April 7 @ 6:00 pm

3 student icons

Have you, or someone you know, ever wanted to learn how to paint icons? I will offer an iconography class here at the parish starting February 4, 2020.  It is perfect for beginners. This icon class is more accessible to average people wanting to paint icons.

This class is a more modern approach to painting icons with the same results. I know if those ancient artists had our modern tools, they would certainly make use of them in creating their icons.  They used the most modern tools of their time.  We don’t use egg tempera.  (But we do use the traditional icon boards, if the students want.). Instead we use water based oil paints so students don’t have to worry about hard to find mediums since those paints are water soluble.

We will be meeting on Tuesdays from February 4, 2020 until April 14, 2020 from 4-6 p.m.  This is a 10 week class.  We are now meeting at the Barn, where we have better lighting.

Beginners will have a choice of icons.  Advanced students will work on an icon of their choice.  At the end of the class, the icons will be blessed at Mass by Fr. Byrd.
