The icon painting course offered by Janine Manheim introduces students to the practice and understanding of the ancient Christian art of icon writing, and re-establishes the techniques developed by the masters of Byzantine Russia. The study of this discipline of hand, mind and heart can lead beyond the technical competence to the discovery of the icon's symbolism. This method of study promotes the incarnation into all aspects of one’s life.

Would you like to arrange an icon painting workshop at your parish or arts group? Six day workshops will take a student from a blank panel to gilding with real gold leaf, to painting in egg tempera, to a finished icon by the last day. No experience necessary.

On going classes the first Thursday of every month at Saint Joseph's Parish in Kings Park.

10 am – 3 pm

$11 per hour plus a materials fee.
