Ancient Art of Iconography: Create Your Own – Intro
FREE INTRODUCTORY VIDEO
Learn about the ancient artwork created by monks from the Eastern Orthodox Christian tradition around the sixth century. The art pieces are meant to be not only a way of giving Glory to God, a Meditative and Prayerful session, a learning time, a resemblance of a sacred figure, but also a creative Spiritual practice. The pieces themselves are not meant to be worshipped but to be a reminder of the person depicted, much like your photo of a family member.
The class is charmingly taught by Alex Kouvel, of Greek heritage, who grew up learning to love the art form. Alex has a desire to share the beauty and significance of Icon’s as he teaches imparting his many years of experience.
There is an Introduction, Class I and Class II, and as a bonus there is a workbook with details of materials needed, steps and process, prayers, samples, and resources. Please enjoy this unique class. It will be a blessing to you and to others as they become acquainted with and view the pieces you and others create.
