Icons are prominent in Ukrainian churches and homes as windows between heaven and earth. The ‘writing’ of an icon is a meditative and prayerful art form; each step of the process and the materials used to paint the icon or image are symbolic. Combining classical Greek and Roman art, iconography evolved during the Byzantine empire to an abstract, stylized form for the instruction and inspiration of the faithful. In this workshop you will learn the process and symbolism of writing an icon.
