Gesso Workshop December 2014
Icon Arts Studio in Austin, TX is presenting a gesso workshop on December 12-14. Students will mix gesso, apply linen cloth, gesso their boards and sand and polish. This is a step that is usually missed in an intensive icon workshop, but it is most important to learn to do. It is both an important foundation for the actual painting of an icon, as well as, for the spiritual benefit of spending a day in meditation and silence while applying several coats of white gesso. I will post pictures during the workshop. in the meantime you can find information about iconography workshops and iconography pigment kits, brushes, and painting palettes.
