About

Join Master Iconographer Dr. George Kordis for a 5-day painting retreat workshop to learn the skills of traditional iconographic painting 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 exercises in the art, expression and language of the icon. Along with reinforcing the importance of good freehand drawing skills (the critical basis of all contemporary Byzantine icon-painting), Dr. Kordis will share an invaluable window into the unique, artistic and spiritual process of creating an limited-palette icon from beginning to end with his tetrachrome palette technique. Along with the daily hands-on sessions, there will be short lectures and other visual inspiration addressing iconography, icon history and theology.

A demonstration with on-site fresco painting as a continuation from the drawing workshop will also be offered.

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

The icon subject for the workshop will be determined at the time of workshop, with George allowing the subject to be open for independent choice for those with prior icon painting experience.

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

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.
