The Icon painting class with David Clayton offers instruction in painting illuminations in the style of the gothic Masters of the School of St. Albans, which flourished in the 13th century England.
The class is taught so that each person gets a high level of individual attention and personalized instruction. This allows everyone work at his own pace and level. Each course will be suitable therefore, both for beginners and the more experienced.
If you have already done one of these courses this will be for building on what you already know – you will be able to choose your own image and will benefit from more instruction. Students will learn the traditional technique of egg tempera.
Additionally, the singing of the Divine Office will run through the course, so people who wish to will have a chance not only to sing the psalms, but potentially also learn to do so at a level that they can start doing it at home or parish – perhaps in front of your own icon corner.
