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.

In this course we are focused on three things: collaborating with your classmates, finding the right materials, and learning new techniques.

The paper gets removed with water and gently rubbing away the excess, leaving on the image! This can take some practice, so best to do a few tests.
