We are thrilled to introduce Fernando Álvarez-Lara, SJ as new faculty for “Art with the Jesuits” week!
Every culture has a palpable sense of the sacred. In this class, we will learn about the spiritual practice of making personal shrines in the Latinx tradition. Students will also be invited to build their own altarcito (personal shrine) and reflect on the objects they chose for their installation. Students will share the narratives behind their symbols, and through stories shared we will experience a sense of our shared humanity.
All experience levels welcome, including beginners. Ages 16+
There will be some demonstrations and safety talks but we will mostly focus on creative work time with individual guidance as needed or wanted.
All projects can be completed within the allotted class time.
Participants can expect to create their own altarcito (personal shrine).
What should I bring to class?
Materials for creating the altarcito will be provided. You are invited to bring items that you feel connected to, such as elemental properties of nature or sacred symbols from your faith tradition and journey.
