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.
