The Language of Beauty at the Service of the Church: Pilot for Diploma in Iconographic Techniques

The Christian Art Studio of Ealing Abbey is pleased to announce enrolments for a diploma course in iconographic technique, starting in January 2024.

 Initial enrolments:
November 2023

Pilot start date:
Friday 5 January 2024.  

3 hour weekly class 11.30am to 2.30pm. 

Term dates:
5 January – 4 May;
6 September – 21 December 2024

Ealing Abbey, London

This will be hands-on learning that is studio-based and student-focussed. It will use a well-established method that builds foundational core skills, instils the principles and practice of iconography, immerses the student in Christian imagery, past and present, and builds critical analysis and discernment.

The aim is to create sacred art that is well executed, technically sound, engages people’s minds and hearts and draws them into the mysteries of Holy Scripture.

If successful, the pilot will be year 1 of a 4 year diploma programme. The course will be taught by iconographer Amanda de Pulford in the Benedictine Centre at Ealing Abbey.

Initial interest has been high but there may be some spaces available in January 2024 or for later enrolments in 2025.
