Prosopon School of Iconography: New York Studio

This page is dedicated to the activity of the New York City Studio of The Prosopon School of Iconology, a much larger organization with locations in North America, Europe and Russia.

Our workshop Studio in New York City offers instruction in the art of iconography of the ancient Russian Byzantine tradition. Founded upon the teachings of master iconographer Vladislav Andrejev, who began teaching iconography in 1985, we follow the iconographic methodology he has diligently refined over many years with a deep respect for tradition, while forging a distinct contemporary development of this living artform.  On July 4, 2000 (Feast Day of St. Andrei Rublev), The Prosopon School of Iconology received the blessing of Archbishop of New York and New Jersey Peter (now reposed) and former Metropolitan of All America and Canada Theodosius.  

Students of all backgrounds are welcome.  No art experience necessary!

    what is the cost for the tuesdays classes?

  3. My name is June Braun. I was one of Vladislav Andreyev’s students in 1985 and 1986. We did 3 icons during that time: Jesus Christ, St. Michael and Our Lady with Christ Child. The first one is hanging in office of our church district president at Concordia College. The second one is in (or was in) office at Prosopon School upstate. The last one is in my church to left of altar. It never received final coat of oil. I would like to bring it in to finish that final step.

    I have been trying to contact you. I have sent emails and have telephoned several times. Today I came to your studios at 41 Greene Street, but there was no answer at the door. Have you moved? Do you still have a studio in the city? Please let me know.
