About

Join Master Iconographer Dr. George Kordis for a 4-day drawing retreat workshop to learn the skills of traditional iconographic drawing using the principles and rhythm of the Byzantine system as a strong foundation for creating beautiful Christian icons.

Dr. Kordis will teach the specific skills of the Byzantine approach through in-depth demonstrations and detailed drawing exercises in the art, expression and language of the icon. Along with teaching the importance of good freehand drawing skills (the critical basis of all contemporary Byzantine icon-painting), Dr. Kordis will also share an observational window into the unique, artistic and spiritual process of iconography. Along with the daily hands-on sessions, there will be short lectures and other visual inspiration addressing iconography, icon history and theology.

A demonstration of on-site fresco work through preliminary drawing process will be shared.

The main goal of the workshop is that students will acquire, develop and improve good, practical and artistic icon-drawing skills while gaining a deeper sense of the art, beauty and meaning of icons.

All students – beginners and experienced alike -- will benefit from the valuable techniques learned in this rare opportunity to study with one of the world's top iconographers.

*** This workshop is limited to 12 students.***

The main goal of the workshop is that students will acquire, develop and improve good, practical icon-drawing skills while gaining a deeper sense of the art, beauty and meaning of icons.

Note: ALL CLASS MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED--Each student will be given a large format sketch pad as well as all necessary drawing tools for use during the workshop.
