Creating art for the One who created us. In this course, students will create art as an expression of worship. Students will review art basics such as the elements of art, color theory and composition, as well as explore the world of mixed media art through collaging, mark making, mono printing, and many other fun techniques that will add texture and depth to their work. Weekly scripture and devotional prompts will help guide students to express their love for God in their art.
This course is designed for students with varied skill and experience in art that have a true desire to worship the Lord in all that they do.
