Students will gain an appreciation and understanding of the symbolic and theological meaning of icons. This is a practical unit where emphasis will be placed on the “writing” of icons as an important method of transforming the sacred invisible into the visible image. Students will study the important role of sacred art in Coptic culture and its role in liturgical life. Finally, students will develop skills and techniques required for writing icons such as preparation, design, colouring and gilding.
