“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”
The occurrences cited in the bible which happened in ancient times during the Advent and Easter Season are hard for adults to grasp, never mind trying to explain the mysterious to little children. So sometimes we must think outside the box to bring stories alive to children through different mediums.
Every so often I work with youth in our church, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, to do art projects which reflect the season. I enjoy kids and seeing their creativity put to good use. But I also offer my experience because art can be a very useful tool in augmenting a Christian curriculum.
Today I have hunted down a few projects with stained glass effects which kindergarten children can do with adult supervision. The basics of the project can be found on this website.
Come on back next week! As with most artists even as an adult, my art education continues. Next week I’ll let you in on an April workshop I am attending which will focus on creating with slightly different form of glass. I’ve been planning on this workshop for quite sometime and it is drawing closer. Looking forward to being with you next time.
