Summer is nearly over but we’ve been so busy with classes, icon retreats and meetings that we’ve not made the time to post on our site. Our next meeting is August 26, 2018 and a few of us will begin the icon of St. Nicholas–another date for September 2, 2018 is scheduled to continue St. Nicholas with the icon completed by November. The icon will be oiled in time for Christmas. There will be no guild meeting on Sunday, September 30th as Vladislav and Tatiana will be in Kiev, Ukraine teaching a full workshop!
We are looking to add more dates into each month as we people return from vacations and the children go back to school! A few Saturday dates have been bandied about along with holding a 2-3 day class each month in addition to our guild meetings. Other artistic practices are heading our way; a silk painting class, soon to be announced amongst other ideas for stimulating our creative juices!
THE NEXT 6 DAY ICON WORKSHOP IN MARYLAND WITH VLADISLAV AND TATIANA IS SCHEDULED FOR MAY 20–25, 2019. THE COST WILL RISE SO IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON ATTENDING–WE CAN OFFER THE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL AT THE CURRENT RATE OF $850.00 FOR BEGINNING STUDENTS AND $675.00 FOR INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED STUDENTS. YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER BY DECEMBER 31, 2018 TO RECEIVE THE CURRENT RATE. PLEASE SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR THE REGISTRATION FORM!
