Description

Anton and Ekaterina Daineko, iconographers from Minsk, Belarus, http://ikona-skiniya.com/ are coming to to Pittsburgh, PA to offer a seven day master class in icon painting in egg tempera, and you can be sure that at the end of the class you will get a complete beautifull icon made with best materials.

Immediately following this class, (June. 22-24), they will offer an additional three day intensive workshop on hands, buildings and mountains for an additional fee of 240.00 ( please contact an organizer Anne Capdeville if you like to sign to this 3 days class - you can do it separatly or together with the main class)

The fee for the 7 days class ( we will paint the Angel photo above the page) is $800.00. All materials, including a fine, hand crafted gessoed board with a finished back, and natural mineral pigments (like cinnabar and malachite) are included in this price. Both beginners and advanced students will benefit from their individualized instruction.

The seven day course will be limited to only 10 students to insure that each one receives highly individualized instruction. Both instructors will guide them step-by-step through the painting of an icon from beginning to end.Anton will paint an icon for demonstration , then he will repaint the same icon step by step so the student can follow under the guidance of Ekaterina. Each student is guaranteed a beautiful completed icon to take home at the end of the class.

Anton and Ekaterina's teaching method is very thorough, and straight forward, without any false mysticism. They combine highly skilled artistry. Teaching from a single stroke to the detailed form, colors , to the stylized, prayerful image.
