Saints of the Undivided Church

"...With this project, we aim at carrying on this fraternal communion and engaging artists, icon painters, Christian communities, cultural centres, and exhibition halls in Europe and Russia.
Sergei Chapnin
Project initiator and curator

The interest to the icons is great all over the world as well as stereotypes about it. However, it is honest, alive and contemporary art.

            These are just some of icons made by contemporary artists from different places.

Icon Painting School (Calgary) offers a WORKSHOP for experienced students and iconographers.

Monday 12th - Friday 16th of June 2017

The instructor: Philip Davydov (Saint Petersburg, Russia)

Workshop description:
This workshop is suitable for experienced students of iconography wishing to develop their drawing and painting skills. The purpose of our workshop is to introduce the visual language of traditional Christian iconography and share our experience and way of thinking. Our workshop encourage creativity and at the same time remain faithful to tradition. We never trace images but instead, teach participants drawing and painting techniques practiced by the most respected iconographers of our time. We show participants how to divide complex tasks into simple ones and the strategies required for completing work. During a five (5) day workshop participants learn to plan the painting of an icon from the first to the last step - from the general to the specific, from sketches to drawing, from drawing to painting, from one detail to the next.

Registration is opened.

Event location: "Meeting Space" 200A Haddon Rd SW Calgary, AB, T2V 2Y6
