WORKSHOP Beyond the Classroom: A Prosopon Workshop for Aspiring Iconographers with Maureen McCormick at the Museum of Russian Icons

This workshop is designed for those who have completed at least one icon with the Prosopon School of Iconology and would like to continue building their skills. Mastering the challenging medium of egg tempera, as well as the learning the “grammar” of iconography, is like the old joke about how one gets to Carnegie Hall: it takes practice, practice, practice! Participants in the workshop will work on studies designed to help build basic skills. Topics to be covered will include making egg tempera, the rudiments of mixing pigments, improving brush control, and painting lines. All materials are provided.
