Athens & Crete SUMMER SCHOOL & Select International Workshops (when available)
Now you can virtually travel to Greece to experience a window into in-person learning with George Kordis from your own home.
This is a wonderful way to stay connected to different aspects of the summer school or a specific workshop — gain access to George’s daily drawing and painting demos, have a tour of the Mets Art Center and the Eikonourgia Atelier where classes are held daily (Summer School), be a virtual tourist into select church, museum and monastery trips, and more. You will get a taste of being there with us along with valuable lessons to grow your icon practice.
All events will be recorded and shared afterwards with daily links to view (an average of 1 to 1.5 hours of content each day – sometimes more).
This experience is hosted through Vimeo and each participant will be given an access code to their personal curated viewing experience to view on demand.
