The Ancient Technique of Icon Painting, Intro-adv: Tues, 6 - 9 pm
Register In this course, students of all levels of artistic skills will create egg-tempera paintings by exploring forgotten medieval techniques of making Byzantine icons. We will learn how to apply gold leaf on handcrafted wood-panels and mix pigments with home-made emulsion and gesso. We will also learn how and why these ancient artistic methods influenced contemporary art and visual culture. For this reason, Byzantine art theory of color, drawing, and composition will be used to discover a new artistic medium and mode seeing images for creative self-expression. This will be done first via a series of exercises to understand the steps of painting exemplary Byzantine icons. In following this historical art form, students will next paint a “personal icon” on a wood-panel based on images and visual composition of their choice.

Multiple Watercolour Techniques, Intro-inter: Thurs, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
This course is focused specifically on DIY-advice and practical exercises aimed to help attendees get rid of so-called “prejudice about difficulties with watercolour”. Through series of simple, clear, step-by-step guidance they will become aware of their artistic skills, get to know how to use washes, mixes, how to avoid rundowns and will be able to create multi-layered, intricate compositions. Series of sessions are designed to help students to find and develop your own style, to experiment with water-based media such as ink, gouache, watercolour crayons, chalk pastels and different resists. You will be encouraged to find subjects that interest you – and instructions will be given to help you reach your highest creative potential and feel satisfied with your accomplishments.
