Do you like hands on art? Lean to paint an Icon with no experience required!! This one day workshop will introduce participants to the basics of iconography and icon painting. We will be creating icons using watercolor paints and gold foil. All materials will be provided and are included in the workshop fee of $75.00. The workshop leader is Anne Emmons. Anne Emmons is a Denver artist schooled in traditional Orthodox Icon painting. Her life has permanently been influenced by a love of beauty and a desire to create images. In a sense, Art is her first language. Emmons received her MFA from Azusa Pacific University in Los Angeles. Emmons' artistic practice is grounded in drawing and painting. She works primarily in watercolors, egg tempera, and gilding. Her art has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Denver, Santa Fe, Washington, Massachusetts and Kansas, and owned in collections in the U.S., Switzerland, Algeria, Bosnia and Chile. Emmons has lead various seminars presented throughout Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma. Her seminars focus on the research of the theology of beauty throughout various artistic traditions.
