Video of the Icon painting workshop:

This past weekend has been a wonderful spiritual and enlightening experience.
Valentin is a very organized teacher with a clever approach. He is helpful and the instructions were explicit. With the help of Ksenia the class was well looked after. I am very happy that I have been part of the workshop. Time well spent!
Learning a new technique in a brief period of time was very worthwhile. 


Excellent program from start to finish. Build confidence in painting as you go along. Great integration with teacher and workmates.


This is a friendly workshop with the professional guidance. It is challenging and satisfying. This is something I wanted to learn for many years. I’m impressed with the readiness of the artist to help me at every step. His depth of knowledge and his eager willingness to share with us all.


I am so glad you organized this workshop. Valentin is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed learning and had fun painting. I also enjoyed meeting members of this parish. You are all very kind, generous and caring.
Thank you so much for this experience.


A great experience. I look forward to future workshops. I thank you with great appreciation.




A wonderful introduction for the absolute novice!


It was an excellent workshop, a great atmosphere and very professional support by the instructor Valentin. It was organized perfectly in term of providing materials, supply, lunch breaks (greatfood!)
Thanks again. Let keep inform me about any events.


A very positive experience! Thank you for all the help.
