St. Nicholas

Archbishop of Myra, Wonderworker


November 27-December 1

One-week Workshop

Monday - Friday

10am - 3pm Mountain Time


This Russian folk icon of St. Nicholas will lead us into the Advent season, preparing our hearts for the celebration of the Birth of Christ. We will dive into the history of the saint who inspired our modern idea of Santa Claus. 

Students will be led step-by-step in the painting the holy image of  St. Nicholas. Daily prayers and discussion will enrich the experience of prayerfully painting or "writing" the icon into being. 

All levels of experience welcome!
