"ICONOGRAPHY TODAY / Writing the Light" A way to uphold and express a Byzantine approach…

Iconography Today provides in-depth study through a variety of classes taught by renowned iconographer Dr George Kordis.


Athens-based iconographer Dr. George Kordis is considered one of the most influential international contributors to the contemporary revival of the Byzantine icon.

...Iconography Today offers extensive study through various online classes with opportunities to learn in person (in Athens at the Mets Art Centre or at international workshop destinations around the world), through a defined on-line certificate program (self-paced study), or with monthly LIVE virtual classes with a specific subject matter shared each month.

As a master artist, he continues to shape the lasting significance of the icon well beyond the borders of the Eastern Orthodox church and is interested in challenging our expectations with the icon -- bringing life and on-going continuum to the Byzantine icon tradition within a modern framework.


Creating a unique kind of visual liturgical poetry with his icons, Dr. Kordis artistically renders anew the sacred biblical themes and personages through a sensitive balance of rhythm and light, conveying a radiant and harmonious presence gifted through time and space.


The opportunity to learn, study and continue to evolve the important dialogue on the connections between the time-honored Byzantine art tradition and the beauty of the contemporary iconographic image alive in the modern context is possible through Kordis’s skillful mentorship, and is what Iconography Today aims to accomplish through its educational outreach.

New for 2022 will also be the KORDIS ICON SUMMER SCHOOL, held for 10 days -- 3 in Athens and a week at the Orthodox Academy of Crete. All students ~ beginners to advanced ~ are welcome.


Writing the Light is a specific branch of Iconography Today -- serving the in-person and LIVE English-speaking opportunities of international workshops and online offerings and working towards a more permanent home in the U.S.


Dr. Kordis is deeply dedicated to his calling of equipping the next generation of artists and iconographers alongside his on-going artistic practice of extensive international iconographic work for churches, galleries and museums.
