About our school

The Edinburgh School of Icon Painting was founded in September 2013. Since then it has been shaping and developing. Our mission is to make icon painting and art, in general, more accessible. We want to help our students to find the courage and become confident in finding their own style.


Our School supports students in developing creative confidence by teaching them the foundation of icon painting techniques and methods. We help our students to find courage in finding their own voice within the tradition through a range of courses open to students of all levels.


Our courses are open to all no matter their experience in any form of drawing or painting.
