Neo-Coptic Nativity 

November 28 - December 2

One-Week Workshop (Full-days)

Monday - Friday 

9am - 3pm Mountain Time

Neo-Coptic iconography is a modern reimagining of the ancient art of the Coptic (Egyptian) Orthodox Church. Coptic art thrived between the 4th and 7th centuries of Christianity before succumbing to the coinciding waves of Iconoclasm and the Islamic invasion. After centuries of slumber a small group of 20th C. artists renewed a vision for the Coptic style, creating an entirely new and different school of iconography. This nativity icon will be a wonderful introduction to the spirituality and charms of the Egyptian style.

 All levels of experience welcome!

Class will be conducted live on Zoom. Sorry, no recordings are available at this time.

This icon will be painted on a 6x9" board. A prepared board will be provided along with instructional materials and gold leaf. First-time students have the option to purchase an Introductory Kit for $12 (recommended). See Essential Supplies for details.
