Deacon Nikita Andrejev
Nikita Andrejev is an iconographer-instructor who has learned his craft through a lifetime immersion. For years he apprenticed to his father, Vladislav Andreyev, complementing this experience with postgraduate theological studies in Paris and the United States. As a member of the faculty team of the Prosopon School, Nikita has contributed to the development of unique teaching methods. The resulting workshop experience enables participants to create and grow through their icon making, developing spiritually through each icon. Since its founding in the 1980s, the School has rediscovered lost techniques of the ancient art of liquid egg tempera and has helped ignite a renewed interest in icons across the USA and the western world. As an ordained priest, Nikita brings a calm, patient and spiritual approach to his teaching. Each day begins with prayers.Visit Tutor's Website

A wonderful balance of theory and practice. The tutor was patient with a big range of abilities. Inspiring and gifted and amazing in keeping us to task completion.
The course was very well organised, illuminating, thought-provoking and tremendously enjoyable.
Informative, exciting and initiatory. Expert guidance on pigment choices.
The teaching was beyond my expectations. Fantastic setting, great course and a great group of students. Very satisfactory overall. I would recommend it to other people.
Tutor was humble, clear and empowering. It took me to my next step as an icon painter.
