“Having an iconography teacher walk me through the process one-on-one was helpful to discover both the technical aspects of painting and the theological depth of iconography. This opportunity provided the perfect amount of autonomy over the project. At anytime in the process I could have guidance about the next step and occasional assistance with the painting technique. With no previous painting experience, I was able to learn the basics and still produce a quality icon that serves as a reminder of my time in Ukraine.”
