Sukey pioneered the very popular shrinemaking class some years ago at Adult Ed in Santa Barbara. She now is bringing it to the Art Clinic.
Shrines can be any size and range from the sacred to the profane to the humorous to remembrance boxes. We will start with little matchbox shrines that open and shut,
with a surprise inside each "shrine." From this we will advance to larger boxes, such as Altoid cans, cigar boxes, deep frames, pencil boxes, antique boxes, drawers, even
suitcases make great shrines. Go to www.artclinic.blogspot.com to learn more.
