This is a long term program that allows you to summarize all your knowledge and skills by painting an icon of Christ Head and Shoulders. There will be two slightly different iconographical types to choose from. Everyone who took “ Drawing Frontal Faces“ and “ Egg Tempera. Faces“ courses are invited.
This program is not as extensive as our regular courses. It’s a combination of new information with things you’ve already learned. I’m going to explain in detail how to paint hair and beard and also how to combine all the details to let them work well together.
We will go from planning an icon and working with sketches to painting an icon of Christ. By the end of this program you will have a clear understanding of the method and stages of professional work.
For everyone who took “Frontal Face“ and “Egg Tempera. Faces“ courses. This program will connect your knowledge of drawing to the process of painting with egg tempera and to show you how to work professionally on an icon.
Subscription payment of $60 USD or €55 Euros for one topic explained in
4 short weekly assignments with personalized mentoring and comprehensive feedback.
5.5 months / approximately 4 assignments per month
Assignments are published weekly with one extra week added before the Christmas and one before the Easter. Two extra weeks at the end are allowed to finish the icon. Images are accepted for corrections until May 16, 2024.
Explanations of each topic either in a video (max 30min) or text (PDF document), reference images. All materials are shared with students in Google Classroom. All the videos remain available to the students after the end of the Course.
Learners are expected to share photographs of their drawings in Google Classroom Stream. Personal feedback from the instructors with their corrections / comments / recommendations is given within 48 hours (weekends excluded). Feedback is guaranteed for the whole period of the course either written in words or/and drawn directly on the uploaded image.
You will only need materials you used on courses “Drawing a Frontal Face” and “Egg Tempera. Faces”. Although I advise you to paint the final image on paper, you can use a gessoed board. I’ll give you all the details about the board size at the end of November.
We made this program not as extensive as our regular courses. However you will need at least an hour a week for drawing (in November) and two-three hours a week for painting (in January-February). I’m not sure how much time it will require to work on the final project (in March-May), because it also depends on you.
This Program starts on November 02, 2023 and will end on May 16, 2024. You will have 4 short assignments per topic. Assignments are published on Thursdays. Some assignments will help to repeat what you’ve already learned, other will contain new information.
After the last assignment is published on May 2, you will have two extra weeks to finish the icon. Images are accepted no later than May 16, 2024.
Access to the Google Classroom and the videos is for the online course participants only and must not be shared with anyone else in any form.
