Beginner Class


Prosopon Beginners' Iconography Workshop
Monday, April 23rd through Saturday, April 28th, 2018
Milwaukie, Oregon

The Beginners' Workshop is open to 18 “beginning” students, and runs from 9 AM to 4-5 PM for the 6 days. Your choice of icon will be of either Archangel Raphael, or the Guardian Angel. ("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 26th  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, as always, we are willing to help you find suitable accommodations. Also some parishioners have been willing to house “a few” of the students if space is available, but no guarantees. For information, please contact me, Rosalie Broding, by email at
