Sacred Doorways- Byzantine Iconography- Advanced Students Only
More than a decorative element, color plays a very important role in Byzantine iconography, which is one of the oldest art forms to survive unchanged for the past 2,000 years. Students are introduced to both the practical and the theoretical part of the iconographic tradition (iconology). Use natural materials: wood panels gessoed with naturally ground, genuine gold leaf and egg tempera made from natural pigments.
Prerequisite: One or two previous iconography glasses.
Fee: $55/session member, $70/session non-member.

Laurence Pierson has over 25 years of experience in icon painting. She studied iconography at the Louvre, Paris, under a Lebanese master. Later, she studied with a Greek and a Chilean iconographer, and thus was exposed to different schools and different techniques while refining her own approach. Laurence has taught in France and Ireland, and since 2010, in Denver.
