We used a four-step mixed media process to create layers of art as prayer during summer VBS. Each day the kids added art elements to their prayer board.
Day one they drew around their hands with a neon colored oil pastel and then sprayed watercolors over stencils.
They had the option of adding a second layer of stenciling.
We talked out the significance of shapes as symbols on the second day, and they added stamped images to their prayer boards.
The kids added words to their payers on day three (teens & adults helped the little ones).
The prayer board was art-accessible for all ages and art sill levels.
