Beginner Class

Prosopon Beginners' Iconography Workshop
Monday, June 17th through Saturday, June 22nd, 2019
Milwaukie, Oregon

Six-Day Iconography Workshop   
The Beginners’ Workshop is open to 15 “beginning” students, and runs from 9am to 4-5PM for the 6 days.  The icon will be of an angel, typically either Archangel Michael, Gabriel or the Guardian Angel, but I haven’t heard the final decision yet from the school.  ("Beginning" in this sense means new to the Prosopon process of Iconography if you have been doing icons, or new to icon painting in general, no matter your artistic skill.)  For more information about the Prosopon School of Iconology, please visit:

Members of the parish will be providing lunch daily for the students. On Thursday evening the 20th we will have a relaxing dinner together; usually Middle Eastern food, and wine will be included.  Snacks, coffee, tea, and juice will be available throughout the day during the course. The Workshop will be held at the Church of the Annunciation, 13515 Southeast Rusk Road, Milwaukie, Oregon 97222. Lodging is not provided, but we are willing to help you find suitable accommodations. For information, please contact me, Rosalie Broding, by email at

Workshop Costs:
The cost of the workshop is $750. 00 
        It is a very popular course and we will take students paying at least a $100.00 deposit, in the order their payments arrive.  Once we fill the 15 available spots we will start a waiting list in case of cancellations. 

  • If full payment is postmarked before May 1, 2019, you will receive a $50 discount. 
  • If you need to cancel after you have enrolled, only your $100 non-refundable registration fee will be retained, unless you cancel within 30 days of the start of the workshop.  Then ½ of your payment will be retained, unless we are able to refill your seat. If that is the case we will only keep the $100.00 non-refundable fee.

Plus Supply Costs: 
Please plan to use the instructor’s supplies during the course. The fee for using the instructor's supplies is $50. The supplies will include clay, gold leaf, brushes, and a palette.  (The brushes and palette are yours to keep.)  You will need to order a 9 1/2 X 12 1/2 or 10 x 13 inch gesso student board with a kovcheg to bring to the class. The cost of the icon board is about $80-$115, depending on style and vendor (excluding shipping). Prepared boards are available through Pandora Iconographer’s Supplies at, or St. John’s Workshop at
