Personal shrines are a way to acknowledge and affirm the sacred in our lives. Shrines hold the power to make us forget our everyday cares and to help center us. A shrine can be created to honor, remember, heal, attract, explore, or express. In this class, students will explore the rich history, cross-cultural significance, and individual art form of shrines; examine contemporary altars from several cultures; and create two styles of personal shrines, which will be as amazing, dazzling, poignant, picturesque, inspiring, and passionate as their makers. All materials will be provided by the instructor. Students may bring personal mementos or other materials if desired.
