This site is dedicated to sharing upcoming icon workshops of Dr. George Kordis Icon at various locations internationally along with other educational opportunities to study with Dr. Kordis and the established Eikonourgia Institute of Contemporary Iconography at the Mets Arts Center in Athens, Greece.


We have gathered the workshop information here in one place so interested students can discover and determine which learning opportunities are best suited to their available schedule, location, and specific interests in pursuing the study of contemporary Byzantine iconography.


Dr. Kordis has a passion for sharing the beauty of writing (painting) icons as a true master of the creative and contemplative process, with a gentle way of leading both beginners and more advanced students deeper into the skills and creative artistry for creating beautiful Christian icons rooted in the Byzantine tradition.


Learning from Dr. Kordis has been a life-changing creative and inspirational highlight for many people venturing into the practice of iconography.  His teaching style is both gentle and encouraging while being clear and deeply engaged in the individual strengths and skills of each student to make for an optimum learning experience.


We hope you join us on this creative and soul-lifting journey as we engage in the importance and beauty of icons in Writing the Light.
