In order to help students continue their practice of iconography between workshops, we are developing online instruction for some images. These online courses include a digital or hard copy sketch, color recipes, step-by-step instructions with digital photographs, and assistance and critique by email, phone or video chat, as needed, in order to complete the icon. The courses are not meant to replace in-person instruction, but to practice techniques learned in the workshops, and are not recommended for those who have not studied the Prosopon method in a workshop. Students use their own board and materials. To enroll in a course, please send a check for the indicated fee, with a signed course enrollment form, to the studio.

It goes without saying that the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is not an Orthodox Byzantine icon, but we have long admired it and found that some techniques and materials used in traditional iconography can be used effectively in copying the image. There are significantly fewer steps in this course as the first layer is largely a monochromatic value painting, therefore this course is recommended for those who have some experience in value painting and drawing.
