What you'll do

In my studio by the grace of God, delivered from 2004 Icon painting lessons . With respect to the Orthodox Tradition of the Church, is an effort by students of the School to learn the sacred art of icon painting through the works of great hagiographical figures who occasionally adorned temples and monasteries of the Orthodox Church with beauty of unique projects, both spiritual and art. Classes are held in a private area of my studio, every day morning from 9:00 until 5:00. The style of our faculty is the so-called Cretan School that flourished during the 14 ° century with the leading representative Theophanes the Cretan.A little magnet with a copy of my work will be given to you as a souvenir when the experience will be over.
