19R235N-A - Soul Houses
August 23, 2019
Friday, 9am-4pm
Lorraine Reynolds


19R235N-A - Soul Houses


19R235N-A - Soul Houses
 

The symbolism linked to birds goes back to the ancient world, where birds were considered to be a supernatural connection between the gods and men. In many Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, birds can represent immortality. In East Indian and Christian mythologies, birds represent the soul. These soul houses are a safe haven for your hopes and dreams. 

This class will introduce you to the art of assemblage as you learn to construct basic house forms that have relevance and meaning in your own world. You will learn the basics of assemblage construction as well as plot a creative journey through storytelling, personal myth, and metaphor. You will take away powerful new ideas about process and art making.

Don't be afraid of the supply list: Really what you need is an old (or new) birdhouse that you are willing to screw, glue, paint, etc., and stuff to put on it. Clean out your junk drawer and/or gather up the bits and pieces that you have been collecting with the thought of doing something with it. This is the something you have been waiting for.

Level: Beginner and above
