Icon Adventures Online Courses
Little taught and interesting areas of iconography will form the basis of online courses to be introduced in 2021. These will be accessible, affordable and professionally delivered, using live online classroom seminars and pre-recorded tutorials via my Icon Adventures website http://www.iconadventures.co.uk/ia/
These unique courses will combine Trecento and Italo-Byzantine Art History with the practical use of Medieval Panel Painting techniques.
The first online course will feature the important ‘Man of Sorrows’ icon.
The art historical aspect of the course will explore the fascinating journey of an icon from East to West and examine the development of its devotional function and spiritual meaning. (Italo-Byzantine + Franciscan art history).
The practical painting part of the course will deliver step-by-step guidance on how to write this simple and powerful icon using Byzantine painting and medieval gilding techniques.
This course will be particularly suitable for those new to icon painting. For the more experienced, it will provide a valuable insight into the transmission and development of iconography in the western medieval sphere.
