These interactive classes teach various aspects of the icon to children at least 7 years of age and up. Activities range from demonstration, interactive discussions, story time and drawing an icon themselves on beautiful sienna paper to take home. We will practice drawing eyes, nose and mouth every day then put it all together in the final class. Along with that we will have a lesson or story for the day.
