Proverbs Visual Arts Project: January 24th

“Like apples of gold in settings of silver, is a word spoken in right circumstances.”

On Sunday, January 24th, elementary age kids at Sojourn's Germantown campus will participate in an art project led by Sojourn artists. The concept for the project is simple.  Kids will pick a single proverb from the book of Proverbs and illustrate it.  The biblical book ‘Proverbs’ is not only a collection of sayings and observations for wise living, it is rich in powerful visual language. Proverbs offers moving insights that confirm our own observations about the world and call us to clearer vision and action as well.  We can learn from these scriptures in a lot of different ways.  One way is by creatively responding to them. We'll have bibles available opened to proverbs.  Kids will be able to search on their own, or they can work from a print out with some especially good proverbs to illustrate.  The results will look something like what you see in the picture above (submissions by the students at Louisville's Christian Academy Southwest).

Here is a video that shows the completion of the project:
