Visions of Heaven
In class, Mrs. Schreuder read this book by Gary Bower. It talks about what heaven will be like. Then, in art we read passages from Revelations and listened to the Revelation Song by Phillips Craig and Dean. We talked about some of those images, such as rainbows, lightning flashes, Christ on the throne, power, majesty and light. Then I gave a brief demonstration of how to make things "glow" with chalk. Then the students were free to create their own image of what they thought heaven would look like! Each one is unique, and I tried not to get too involved and to let them do their own thing. Please enjoy these first grade artists' interpretations of heaven!
