We have been invited by Rosalie Renyeri of the Pandola Learning Center in Baltimore, MD to demonstrate the beginning practice of writing the icon of Archangel Michael on paper. This is not an icon class or workshop, it is an introduction to the Prosopon School of Iconology method of writing Russian-Byzantine icons.  For more information, please visit Pandola’s website: www.pandola.baltimore.md.us and sign up to attend.  The Rev. Oreste Pandola Learning Center is in the heart of Little Italy located in St. Leo’s School 914 Stiles Street, Baltimore, MD  or call Rosalie on 410-866-8494/email: rosalieran@yahoo.com
