“The icon writing class proved to be much more than just a painting class. It was an extended meditation offering a place of respite from all the demands of life. However, as a painting class it was exceptional. I learned more about classical drawing and painting technique than I learned in any other art class I’ve ever taken, and that is a testament to the talent and experience of the instructor.” Karen L., A Recent Icon Student
