A (non-scadian) Greek artist is coming to Lincoln NE to teach a six-day
workshop on Byzantine Iconography.  Too expensive for me, but I thought I'd
pass the info on in case anyone had both the cash and the days off.  There
are apparently six slots.

Perhaps someone would forward this to the Facebook group?

*Icon Painting Workshop *

*June 25 - July 1, 2015                      Lincoln, Nebraska*
Join us on this six-day intensive course where we will immerse ourselves in
the painting techniques of Byzantium. The subject of the icon of "Jesus
Christ" will come alive before you as the instructor, Theodore
Papadopoulos, guides you, step by step, through the ancient techniques of
Byzantine Iconography. Let us journey together to discover new secrets in
this traditional artistic expression of theology and spirituality, in this
meeting place of the Divine. Whether you are a beginner or a professional,
this workshop offers an opportunity to learn and/or refine your techniques
in this sacred art.
The course focuses on the art of egg tempera painting. Our goal is for
students to understand and learn the artistic practices as well as the
philosophy of Orthodox Iconography. The coursework is divided into
individual steps; the instructor explains the principles and then
demonstrates each phase in detail, answering all questions. Through the
process of demonstrations the stages as well the whole method of painting
an icon will be presented.  The students will then put into practice these
skills under the guidance of the instructor Theodore Papadopoulos.
The techniques of painting will be taught in a clear and concrete way
enabling the students to apply what they have learnt once the workshop is
completed. Great emphasis is placed on the student acquiring
"hands-on"experience, in order to be able to comprehend and put into
practice the techniques Byzantine icon painting requires. From the very
beginning to the completion of the course, every student will work on his
or her painting with assistance by the instructor.
The courses will be in daily basis from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
*Day 1       *

understandable way.
