In chapel for last month's Beauty-Creating theme, the grade 5-8 students recreated Van Gogh's "Starry Night." Each student was responsible for one tile and could use whichever type of medium they liked. We took inspiration from Van Gogh, who took inspiration from God's creation, to create a work of beauty. As I'm sure you will agree, the best works of beauty are inspired by God's own works of beauty. It is so amazing that God created us in His own image so that we too have the ability, knowledge and craftsmanship to create beauty.
Exodus 31:3-5 - "and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge and all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold, silver, and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, to work in every craft."
