Self-paced Icon Writing Retreat: Coptic Iconography, Archangel Gabriel


Coptic iconography:

Archangel Gabriel

This is a PRE-RECORDED, self-paced retreat which provides opportunity for anyone to enjoy icon writing regardless of location and schedule. 


I have designed the icon of St. Gabriel to be a companion icon to the Coptic St. Michael, which was offered in October of 2023. The original icon of Gabriel may be lost or may never have existed but these two often are depicted together, usually flanking the central icon of a triptych.

All levels of experience welcome!
