Zhi and Pope Francis
Our August Icon Guild Meeting brought several special guests; one being Pope Francis who so kindly allowed his photo to be taken with Zhi and two new students — Rebecca  and her cousin, Craig.  It was a quiet morning (we start at 10:00am now) as most were on vacation but we worked diligently introducing Rebecca and Craig to their icon journey!

Rebecca and Craig having fun!

Rebecca and Craig learned how to make egg tempera and mix the pigments for their line work. Following Olga’s recommendations to perfect linework; both have never painted icons before so they are being taught from the get go how to make the initial steps. We look forward to seeing them learn from Vladislav when they take the workshop October 19-24, 2015.

Practice makes perfect!

Working on an image of Theotokos, line work, sankir and the beginning of roshkrysh was accomplished. By then it was time to close and head out to the Friar Fest to enjoy three bands that played into the evening, harmonizing with the cicadas who accompanied the musicians.
