Iconography Drawing Workshop
Thursday June 29 – Sunday July 2, 2017
Led by Philip Davydov and Olga Shalamova
After teaching a number of workshops, where we led our students through the whole process of icon-painting, we see a necessity to introduce more specialized workshops, fully dedicated the most essential skill for iconographers: drawing.
During the 3.5 days we plan to let our students gain the ability to understand the form-building process. We will also teach the main principles of drawing with pencil and a brush. Drawing is basic for any good image, but even if after the workshop you will want to continue to paint using linear drawing on paper, you will understand it much better after attending this specialized workshop.
This particular workshop is universal, it fits both advanced students and beginners.
