About This Workshop:

Learn to paint a traditional Byzantine icon from start to finish under the instruction of Brian Matthew Whirledge, M.Ed, a teacher/iconographer who has painted icons for homes and churches across the country for over a decade. This hands-on workshop is for everyone: beginners without artistic experience will create a successful icon while advanced painters will be challenged. Students receive step-by-step instruction, demonstration, and all materials to paint this icon.

Monday-Friday, June 11-15, 6-9pm
Saturday, June 16, 9am-early afternoon


Theotokos (Madonna) of Vladimir, one of the most beloved and venerated icons in Orthodox Christianity, and a beautiful example of the "Tenderness" type, showing Christ snuggling up to His Mother's cheek. Our icon will be close-up, like in the image below. It will also be 9x12" (significantly larger than the 8x10s we've painted in the past), so there won't be any tiny, frustrating details!



$375/new students or $325/returning students, which includes all materials to complete an 9x12” icon. Deposit of $100 required to register. Balance due at the first class. Please inquire about scholarships based on financial need/ student status.
