Brendan McAnerney, OP, who wrote our wonderful icon
of St. Catherine of Siena for us, will be offering two very
interesting courses on iconagraphy this summer at the
Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology.

Icon-Sacred Image (1.5 units)

June 18-22: M-F/ 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
This course will examine the history, theology, spirituality and tradition of icons as sacred Eastern Christian images, established on the doctrine of the Incarnation. It will demonstrate that iconography is a sacred craft and prayer form. This course is a prerequisite for “Introduction to Icon Painting.”

Introduction To Icon Painting (1.5 units)
June 25-29: M-F/ 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

In his course each student (maximum 20) will be instructed and aided in the painting (writing) of an icon of the Holy Mandylion in the Byzantine tradition using acrylic paints, gold leaf, ancient and contemporary techniques. No previous artistic experience is necessary, only a desire to encounter the Creator God in the exercise of the sacred craft. This course requires 24 hours of painting, so it will meet 4.5 hours each of the five assigned days.

Fr. Brendan is the only Dominican in the country who is bi-ritual (Latin/Byzantine) and is a wonderful teacher and iconographer. If you are interested in icons, you'll really enjoy this. Think of it as a two week vacation devoted entirely to iconography!

These classes are part of the new summer intensive courses offered through the DSPT. Check 'em out!
