If you or any of your peers are interested in iconography, a master iconographer will be offering a course June 19-23 at Saint Louis Priory School’s Art Studio (500 S. Mason Rd.) The course is 5 days, with 7 hours of instruction each day. The cost ($650 per person) and covers personal coaching, materials (sourced from UK, Romania, and South America), lunch, and refreshments. Each participant will walk away with their own icon (8” x 11”). The proceeds will go to the iconographer’s monastic community in Peru, which depends on course revenue to cover its living expenses. Even if you have little or no artistic experience, please don’t view that as a deterrent! The iconographer will help you bring beauty and prayer to your Icon.
The Iconographer, Fr Alex Echeandia Loro OSB, apprenticed in Guatapé, Colombia, studied under Aidan Hart at the Prince of Wales’ School of Traditional Art, and completed his training at the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv Oblast, Ukraine.
