If you are curious about icons or have ever wondered how they were created and what the symbolism is all about, master iconographer Sherry Lynch is offering a 12 week icon painting class at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 11229 N.E. Prescott St. beginning, Saturday, Feb. 23 at 11 a.m.
Lynch trained in Turkey and was acknowledged as an iconographer by His All Holiness Patriarch Athenagoras, Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 1948 to 1972.
Until last year, she taught at the Iconography Institute at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.
Lynch will lead participants in creating their own icon with reverence, respect, and joy.
The class fee is $125 or $11 per session.
A prepared board and a booklet will be given to each student and a list of materials will be distributed upon registration.
To register, call St. Matthew’s at 503-252-5720.
