ARST 121 - Introduction to Icon Painting

FC ARHU
4 credits
Students will study the techniques of Russian icon painting and the philosophy behind the form and craft. We will learn about the traditional methods and materials using raw pigments mixed in egg yolk, traditionally gessoed panels, and gold leaf. Each student will make their own traditional icon using the ancient process of Russian Icon painters. This process was developed to make images that assist spiritual transformation for both the painter and the viewer. Each student will then take and adapt this ancient practice to create their own work.
Prerequisites & Notes: This course was formerly taught as ARTS 047.
