The 2018 Advanced Iconography Workshop will be held from Monday July 23 to Saturday July 28. Students will have a choice between doing an icon of Saint Jacob's Ladder, or else an icon with a detail of Saint Jacob hugging the angel. Students will be sent a sketch of the icon beforehand and will be required to begin preparing the icon ahead of time from the sketch, including doing the gilding and the lines. Thus, all students will be required to have completed enough icons in the Prosopon method to be able to work on their own, and to have their own supplies to do so. More information to follow!
2016 was the first year we split the course into beginner and advanced workshops. Students at the Advanced Workshop have loved the change, since Dmitri has been able to concentrate solely on advanced-level needs. A few examples: Dmitri has expanded our understanding of strategies for painting multi-figure composition and the use of a limited pallet to maximize the color effect.
