The Holy Spirit craves a strong Christian presence in artistic communities around the world. With a focus on raising artists who will be that presence, Masha Hemmerling shares an art teacher's manual, designed to teach visual arts from a Christian perspective.
Hemmerling, a seasoned art teacher and Christian, teaches elements of art through theology, theory, practice, and projects within eight engaging and equipping lessons. Students will learn about God as a Creator of each particular element, why He invented it, and how He used it in His creation. Pupils will discover how each element of art is used in different disciplines, professions, and industries, and how famous artists have used elements in their artwork. After practicing elements with different tools, media, and techniques, students then have an opportunity to create an art project using a step-by-step process of developing artwork from an idea and then switching to pencil drawing or painting, and applying finishing touches.
Elements of Art with God in Heart is a teaching manual that guides Christian artists to rely on God's grace to inspire their creations, and then become witnesses of His power and unconditional love to be lights in the world.
