This class will introduce basic drawing techniques and anatomy of the face and figure, both in the icon and in traditional portraits. Media will include charcoal, pencil, brush and ink. We will learn and practice the “line” of the icon and develop skill and confidence in drawing.
Ideal for beginning icon students, and helpful for those who want to understand the structure of the icon figure and the theology illuminated in the form of the icon.
Class will be led by Karen Ward, an artist, iconographer, and art teacher.
