Join us on this six-day intensive course where we will captivate you in the art of the Byzantium painting technique. During the course we'll write (paint) the icon of Christ Pantocrator.This icon of Christ Pantocrator is inspired by one of the most admired artworks of Byzantine iconography.
It is a detail of a wall painting dating back to the 13th-14th century, and was painted by the great iconographer Manuel Panselinos in the Monastery of the Protaton at Holy Mt. Athos.
This icon is a unique example of the Macedonian school of iconography and is considered by scholars as one of the most magnificent works of all time.
This  “Christ Pantocrator ” icon will come alive before you as the visiting master iconographer and expert instructor, Theodoros Papadopoulos, guides you, step by step, through the ancient techniques of Byzantine Iconography.
Let us journey together, discovering anew, this traditional artistic expression of theology and spirituality, often called the "meeting place of the Divine". Whether you are absolutely beginner or an advanced artist, this workshop offers an opportunity to learn and refine your techniques in this sacred art.
The course focuses on the art of egg tempera painting. Our goal is for students to understand and learn the artistic practices as well as the philosophy of Orthodox Iconography. The coursework is divided into individual steps; the instructor explains the principles and then demonstrates each phase in detail, answering all questions. Through the process of demonstrations the stages as well the whole method of painting an icon will be presented.  The students will then put into practice these skills under the guidance of the instructor Theodoros Papadopoulos.
The techniques of painting will be taught in a clear and concrete way enabling the students to apply what they have learned once the workshop is completed. From the very beginning to the completion of the course, every student will work on his or her painting with assistance by the instructor.
