Easter art projects we’ve done so far this year:
- Completed the three art lessons on The Crossmaker DVD from See the Light
- Experimented with chalk pastels while drawing Easter Lilies.
- Watercolor painted Easter scenes
- Today in church the kids made palm leaves out of construction paper – totally getting added to our bulletin board
Last week the kids and I also started this watercolor lesson from the See the Light Blog. We’ll finish it this week on Thursday (our art day.) A quick google search will help you find all kinds of Easter art projects and crafts, too.
Tips for making projects intentional and meaningful:
- Don’t overplan and “overpreach” the art lesson, keep it easygoing and fun.
- While you draw, paint, etc, chat and ask questions about Jesus, his crucifixion, resurrection and God’s plan for salvation. It’s not a test, just a conversation.
- Incorporate a key scripture into/onto the art lesson if you want to.
- For a time, hang the art projects in a prominent place to serve as a visual reminder of what you’re celebrating!
