Two girls worked on this poster. The background was done with watercolor and the figures were projected onto black paper and then cut out and glued onto the background. The girls then added the leaves and flowers with acrylic. The serpent was made from paper and added on to the poster at the end.
We had an art project on the Patriarchs for 5 weeks. The children made four pictures in plasticine. In this picture, one child worked on the background, one on the stars and one on the figure of Abraham.

A grade K-1 class made a poster of Jesus the Good Shepherd who comes to seek the lost. The children put 99 thumb prints on a pre-painted background with acrylic paint. One boy drew and coloured the figure of Jesus with the 100th sheep in his arms.
For some children drawing can be intimidating but decorating words is easy. We use word-based art when teaching a concept or learning a memory verse. By writing out the memory verse a child meditates on scripture and learning it becomes easier. These memory verse cards become treasures as they are taken home and posted on bedroom walls or the fridge for everyone in the family to know and learn.
Word art used in teaching catechism memory work.
These four Pentecost banners were made using a technique found on the website That Artist Woman. They were made with white fabric, blue Elmers school gel glue, and acrylic paint.
A wall hanging we made after our Ten Commandments unit. In groups of two the children glued paper onto wooden board and then added a number and what the commandment meant. For example, #3: Respect God's Name, #6: Nurture Life and #7: Marriage is Special.
