Iconography Class

I taught an iconography class at Saint Nicolas Orthodox Church in Cohoes, NY for a few years. It was a wonderful experience for me and I hope for the students.

Each year on the Sunday closest to December Sixth, which is the feast day of Saint Nicolas, the orthodox bishop of New York and New Jersey made a visit and blessed the icons which we had produced during the previous year.

The bishop blessed the hands of the iconographers as well as the icons. Here I am receiving a blessing from the bishop.
