Art Portfolio: Russian Icons

A group of Mr. Johnson’s portfolio art students is learning to paint authentic Russian icons. They are designing on solid wood panels, which require a complex preparation for proper and permanent paint adhesion true to the original process. Natural pigments and gold leaf are among the many supplies that are used in this unique art. The students are doing a fantastic job and we look forward to sharing their finished pieces.
