Students can expect to do/learn: "If you build it, they will come..." Let's construct a shrine from the foundation up! We will build a house shape to honor someone, manifest a desire, a prayer or a special moment or memory. Tell your story in this three-dimensional construction.

Each student will cut, cover and construct a shrine to collage, paint and embellish into your personal story. We will start by all building the same size shrine to begin our individual project. Outside shrine measures 6.5" x 9.5", inside shrine measures 6" x 9" with main area measuring 6" x 5.5" given so you can collect appropriate size copies to mount.

Elements and principles of design will be covered to guide you towards the best college results. Lots to learn, and lots of fun! Let's build something!

Sample pictures show examples of what can be created in this class.
