Eric Michaels-“Painting Snow Scenes in Watercolor” @ Franciscan Life Process Center
Feb 21 @ 9:00 am – Feb 23 @ 4:00 pm

This studio workshop will explore the properties of snow: how the light, and the surroundings, affect the snow, and how the snow affects its surroundings. I’ll demonstrate how snow can be used as a great foil for design in the landscape. We will look at the various watercolor techniques that can be employed to enhance winter landscapes. I will present tips on how to simplify, and, at the same time, strengthen your paintings. http://ericmichaelsfineart.com/

Dmitrii and Tatiana Berestova-“Icon Painting”-Prosopon School of Iconology @ Franciscan Life Process Center
Mar 4 @ 9:00 am – Mar 9 @ 4:00 pm
Students are introduced to the practical and theoretical aspects of icon writing. Interpretations of iconographic symbolism and the theological and anthropological basis of each step of the process are presented in parallel to the technical instruction. By the end of an intensive workshop, the beginner completes writing of an icon. No artistic experience is required of the beginning student. The Prosopon School does not hold the preparation of professional icon writers as its foremost purpose, although such a possibility is not excluded. The main goal of study is rather to cultivate a clearer consciousness of the Image of God according to which man was created. The student is (re)introduced to the teaching of the Church through the language of line, light, and color. Notions are drawn from Scripture, Tradition, and Patristic thought. Through the visual language of the icon, the student may move toward a better vision of the self, the world, and the Divine. By writing an icon, the student works toward the reestablishment of the original untarnished condition of man’s image in a disciplined way.”
This will be the Beginners / Intermediate class.
The icon of Christ Pantocrator will be the theme for the class. The first time students will work on Archangel Michael/Archangel Gabriel, the others will work on the icon of Christ Pantocrator.
The cost for returning students is $100 less than for the beginning students since the returning students will be bringing their own boards with the gilding completed before the class.
