As a Sunday School teacher, each week I pray about interesting ways to
present the stories and ideas in the Weekly Bible Lesson. The idea to make
art out of selected citations from the Bible lesson came to me recently as I was thinking about teaching the 5th-6th grade class. I wasn’t sure if any of them were reading the lesson on a regular basis, and thought if they could learn to love and appreciate individual citations, they might be more inclined to study and love the entire lesson. The idea is to provide them with a template each week on drawing paper that they can paint (watercolor) and then fill in with a fine point marker with words, citations, thoughts on the upcoming week’s lesson. We bring them in the following Sunday to show what we each did with the page, and talk about what citations were selected
and why….which hopefully promotes a lively conversation about the Bible lesson.
