Participate in a byzantine icon painting workshop. The workshop is conducted with egg tempera in the same traditional way as was the case in the Byzantine times. In this workshop, the person that participates will paint an icon, using paints made from egg yolk and colour powders. At the end of the workshop the memder will have completed the icon and will get their own painting as a result. These workshops are suitable for people with no previous experience in painting, as well as for amateur or professional painters who wish to study the byzantine art genre. Lessons are stand-alone, which means that during the course, each participant is given the opportunity to complete an icon fully. Everything needed -canvases, brushes, easels, colours, etc.- are provided by the atelier.
I paint, illustrate children’ s books, paint portable icons and frescoes in churches. I teache Byzantine painting in Zakynthos, Paris, and Athens at my “Atelier Pilarinos” and in “Austrian Summer Academy in Greece” I have given nine private painting exhibitions in Brussels, Paris, Switzerland Baden and Athens.
Everything needed for the workshop-canvases, brushes, easels, colours, etc.- are provided by the atelier.
We will conduct our workshop in my painting atelier in the centre of Athens under the Acropolis. There is the place i paint and my students come to study when i teach byzantine painting.
