Sabbath Activities: Art

Creative arts are good fun, messy but fun. If you are feeling like having some art in your life might be fun then this might be the activity for you.

What is needed
Paper or canvas
A favourite bible text
A little imagination and a lot of fun

This works for children, adults, art pros and first timers. The idea is simple take a big piece of paper or canvas and either paint an image inspired from your text or your text itself. If you are working with a group of people make it more interesting by having each person contribute a small part of the image. It will add to the image to see each persons part add to the whole. If you have children it might be an idea if they are small to draw an outline of something really big they can have fun colouring.

Simple ideas to get you started

Text: The Lord is my Shepherd
Image: little children sitting with lambs

Text: Noah's Ark
Image: have each person contribute their favourite animals as an image

Text: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
Image: clouds casting a shad own on the earth or over a person

Have fun and if you do get a chance take a picture of your artwork and post it on the page I would love to see how it goes.
