“Students will come away with a finished icon on a museum quality panel and a new vision for the possibilities of artistic expression. This is a visual language that will give you the practical skills as well as a theoretical foundation for a rewarding and fulfilling artistic vocation.” Fr. Anthony Salzman

Iconography Lectures & Seminars (for churches, schools and other organizations)
For over twenty-five years Fr. Anthony has been writing icons and teaching on the development, history, theology and use of icons in the Orthodox Church.
Extensive digital presentations include photographs of some of the most treasured churches in places such as Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt, Jerusalem, Yugoslavia and Russia and are presented in an interesting and comparative manner with other art traditions. You may choose the topic or topics that you would like emphasized. Father's mannerism is engaging and inspiring with an artistic flare.
Some of the areas of discussion are as follows:
- the theological dimension of iconography
- the liturgical aspect
- the history and development
- the iconoclast controversy
- planning an iconographic program for a church
- the technical aspects of painting icons
- or a broad introduction to Iconography that touches on all aspects (minimum 1 hour)
