Color and Light: Painting a Byzantine Icon in Brookline MA

June 5, 2017

June 5 through June 9, 2017 – Learn the fundamentals of icon painting from acclaimed iconographer George Kordis. Color and Light is an intensive, five-day workshop that immerses participants in the theory and practice of icon painting in the Byzantine tradition. Working alongside George Kordis, students paint their own icon using egg tempera.

George Kordis has painted churches throughout Greece and on Mount Athos, North America, and the Middle East. He regularly teaches iconography workshops in the United States and Europe.


The workshop will meet from 9:30–1:30; supplemental afternoon activities will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Students will receive instruction in the drawing and painting of an icon. The goal of the workshop is for students to complete an icon of the Theotokos or an Archangel.

The workshop fee includes a coffee break and lunch each day and transportation to St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church in Braintree. Those participants who do not wish to purchase their own materials may register for the Workshop + Materials. Those registering for this option will receive their materials on the first day of the workshop.

Workshop fee: $800.00
Workshop + materials: $1025.00
Workshop size: 12–15 students
