Back in this post I shared the ideas for helping kids see God at work in their lives through reflective narrative writing. My students wrote five narratives this year as part of that project, and also created a corresponding art project to illustrate their writing. This is one of those five art projects, and it matched with this topic:
o Writing God’s Story on Your Heart: Write about knowing that Jesus is a part of your life. You have lots of choice with this topic!
First I gathered old magazines, textbooks, calendars, etc. that could be cut up.
They then glued the square somewhere on a 9"x12" piece of drawing paper and had to finish the picture using other media (crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc.) of their choice. Some of them worked to recreate what the rest of the actual original picture looked like, and some used the small square to create their own story.
Here are a few examples:
|St. Joan of Arc|
|Jesus gathering the little children to Himself|
|Moses and the 10 Commandments|
|Artwork inside a church during Mass|
|The Sermon on the Mount|
