The Modern Saints will be hosting a “Modern Iconography” class at 400 W Rich, on October 20th

This class will go over some of the history, materials, process, symbolism, and methods of iconography to help you develop a sense of the Tradition of iconography. Then, using some new methods and materials, we will craft a “modern icon” of our own, borrowing or innovating from this Tradition however we would like to make an experience of creation that fits us and our faith practice.

Again - this is not a strictly traditional iconography class! We will be breaking some of the rules, even if just to learn that we prefer the rules!

Admission to these classes is proof of preorder of The Modern Saints book! (Find links on themodernsaints.com)

Materials will be provided, just bring a board, piece of repurposed wood, canvas, or other base material with you!”
