Happy New Year!

Many changes to come in this brand new year!  We are revamping our website to accomodate our growth; you may have noticed a few links have temporarily disappeared but they will return in a different format.  Our statistics for 2015: we experienced 12,943 unique visitors and in the first few days of January, 2016 we’ve had 87 unique visitors!  It is our desire to continue to grow and spread the good word of the Gospels, visible in light and color.

January 2016 brings us the new Archangel Michael DVD which was filmed by Yevgeniy Vaskevich during our workshop with Vladislav Andrejev last year.  The Archangel Michael icon was given to our guild at the end of the week much to the surprise and excitement of those present!  Filmed at the Shrine of St. Anthony, the DVD is now available for purchase through www.prosoponpractice.com/preorder for $60.00 for preorders and after January 18, will rise to $65.00 or you may contact Yevgeniy directly at zheka@mac.com

February, 2016 brings Dmitri Andreyev back to visit with us for his open studio intensive.  Beginning Saturday, February 6 and running through Monday, February 8, we work 9:00am to 5:00pm daily with hands on approach with Dmitri.  A wonderful opportunity to have the undivided attention of a Master–bring an icon you are currently working on and need help with or start a new one if you wish to learn proper application of pigments and gold.

We view the open studio intensives as a bridge to the week long icon workshops!  Two and three day spots are open, please register by February 1, 2016 (go to the link in this site titled Workshops and Events to download the registration form or call Mick to reserve your seat 410-303-2392) we can guarantee you will have a wonderful experience and learn more than you anticipated.  Class size is limited and if you need a place to stay during the weekend, call Mick.

The photos shown are from the December, 2015 open studio/intensive–we hope you’ll join us next month!


Amy was gifted this intensive by her Mom, Lisa 🙂

There will be NO GUILD MEETING THIS MONTH AT THE SHRINE.  A research visit to the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Massachusetts conflicts with the dates we set forth.  We will keep you posted on the date of the icon guild meeting place.

April, 2016


April 17–22, 2016

We are pleased that our minimum of 15 students has been met and we can accept up to 5 more students for this week long workshop.  We like to keep two students per table to be able to spread out comfortably!  Join us for a wonderful experience!

Stay tuned for more information about our October, 2016 Icon Workshop!  We have 7 students pre-registered (seats go very quick!) The registration form can be mailed to you (snail mail) so if you’d like to sign up for our October workshop, please contact Mick.  We will post the October registration form online after April 1, 2016.
