“Icon Painting 2017”

Icon Painting Workshop with Christine Broussard.
Four (4) days in Ormond/Daytona Beach, FL area
November 10, 11 12 and 13th, 2017 or November 4,5,6,7th, or 5,6,7,8th

This class provides intensive instruction in the art and language of the icon using acrylic as a binder and
applying multiple levels of glazes to create transparency, just as it was done with egg tempera.
In the four (4) day workshop a 9x12 inner glow painting chriswood panel will be ready for transferring
drawing to the board.
Base coat colors will be applied to the entire board.
Then first, second and third highlights will be added, together with calligraphic inscriptions,
On the last day, adding finishes touches and outside painting of the frame.
We’ll spend an hour on reflection on the workshop and celebrate the completion of our icon.
Workshop schedule:
9:30 to 12:00
Lunch break, you are welcome to bring your lunch, coffee, drinks and water will be available
1PM to 5PM and you can warm up your lunch if desired.
Basic concepts of icon writing, history and methods of painting will be demonstrated after a beginning
prayer as it is customary in icon writing.
Students will be taught methods of applying glazes and basic colors by creating shadows and highlights
on clothing, hands and face. Students are encouraged to take notes, bring a small book so you can paint
the different colors you will be using as future reference.
***Silence, reverence and dedication practiced in the studio will help each one of us to meet the creative
Board, pigments will be provided. A list of what you can bring to the class will be available including
brushes. There will be some for sale if desired.
**Since it is a four day class, board preparation and gold leafing will be discussed, yet not practiced. On a
future icon, you will learn how to proceed with gold leafing.
I tend to work with a limited palette of colors, thinking of shapes and color combination.
the ideal setting time is six months to a year before applying varnish when using egg tempera. However,
with acrylic, you can stop when finished to apply a varnishing coat for long lasting protection.

Cost of the four day workshop with all material provided.
$470.00. Six to eight students - Deposit: $100.00
