I have studied and lectured at many tertiary institutions and Business Schools in South Africa but St Augustine College changed my heart.

An Introduction to Christian Iconography
Fr Justin Venn
Duration & Time:
On Request ( Minimum of 5 people)
This module covers a broad scope of iconographic theology and history, following the Christian image from its birth to the modern period, then takes a look at the Renaissance, the decline of the Byzantine icon, and, finally, contemporary revival. Current practice and challenges will also be examined. In unison with this theology, the class will also practice basic icon drawing techniques, covering draughtsmanship, construction and balance, composition, and form modelling.
