One of my favorite projects of this past year was working with the fabulous kids, volunteers, and staff at Worthington Presbyterian Church. I read the poem "All Things Bright and Beautiful" by Cecil Francis Alexander to Sunday School participants from ages 3-10. Students drew creatures and flowers. I took all of their fabulous drawings and added them to a tree of my design. The resulting mural is a mash up of their work and mine and is located in the nursery of the church. I have included pictures of some of the kid's drawings as well as their painted translations. I also included each child's name in the mural. One of the reasons I love this project so much is because it combines two of my favorite things teaching and painting! Plus, the children's art is so much better than anything I could come up with!
