Iconography Workshop - 03/12/11

On Saturday and Sunday March 12th and 13th, the parish hosted a two-day Iconography workshop in the hall of St. Demetrius Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral. The presentation and practical workshop was provided by Alex Mezentsev, Iconographer. There were at least 28 participants of all ages in the workshop, who first enjoyed a slideshow presentation on the history of Iconography, and then participated hands-on by writing their own icons. Participants used traditional techniques of charcoal image transfer, gold leafing, and painting using specially-prepared tempura paints.

Thank-you to all who participated. Thank-you to the presenter Alex Mezentsev for providing the interesting and informative sessions, and thank-you to Michael Zienchuk for organizing the event.
