2. A lecture introducing the technic and the technology of the creating of an icon.

Both of the lectures are is excellently visualizated with a slideshow.

Practical part:

Every student will work out an orthodox icon on his own at his choise from several, given from the instructor, appropriate variants.

Short final lecture (conferance), with the purpose of general conclusion of the reached from the students results.
