Canvas Painting DesignVerses 7.7.16
Thursday, July 7th
6:00 – 8:00 pm
ages 10 and up
no experience necessary
Have you ever wished you could be an artist? For some odd reason I think that creating with a canvas is what an artist does, and I don’t really consider myself an artist, so I tend to avoid working on canvas. Sometimes even thinking about being creative doesn’t seem like a spiritual activity, so Satan tempts me to avoid that too.
Jerry Solomon & Jimmy Williams wrote a thought provoking article titled “Art and the Christian” with this reminder:
Since we are made in God’s image that must include the glorious concept that we too are creative. After creating man, God told him to subdue the earth and rule over it. Adam was to cultivate and keep the garden (Gen. 2:15) which was described by God as “very good” (Gen. 1:31). The implication of this is very important. God, the Creator, a lover of the beauty in His created world, invited Adam, one of His creatures, to share in the process of “creation” with Him. He has permitted humans to take the elements of His cosmos and create new arrangements with them. Perhaps this explains the reason why creating anything is so fulfilling to us. We can express a drive within us which allows us to do something all humans uniquely share with their Creator.
Thursday, July 7, 2016 @ 6:00 we will connect with our inner, God created artist to enjoy Canvas Painting DesignVerses. As we Creatively Connect with God’s Word (CC2G) we will create a colorful canvas enhancing a DesignVerse. No experience is necessary for this painting adventure. Your creation will serve as a wonderful reminder of God’s design for life.
The Canvas Painting DesignVerses class has a suggested donation of $10.00 to cover the cost of canvas, paint, and other supplies. It would be a good idea to bring a painting apron, smock, or oversized cover shirt.
A limited number of spaces are available, so please register each family member who plans to attend and include names in the Comment box. Registration cut-off is 24 hours before the event. We look forward to having you and/or your family join us for a fun summer of Creatively Connecting to God’s Word!
