36 hours of hands-on study of holy icons and the Orthodox faith. Goal was to complete a simple icon of Archangel Michael using the traditional Byzantine method of egg tempera and natural pigments. Each session included lecture on theory and its corresponding technique along with the practice of making an icon.
The class was taught by Lynette Hull, an affiliate instructor of the Prosopon School of Iconology. More than a dozen participated in the workshop.
