In this first lesson of the New Year, I want to quote Billy Graham. He said, “Believers look up,
for the angels are nearer than you think… Angels often protect God’s servants from potential
enemies.” Let’s look at angels in art.
Angels are generally seen as messengers of God. They are also seen as creatures of good, spirits
of love, and messengers of the Savior Jesus Christ. When we think of the angels, we can think of
angels who were with the shepherds announcing the birth of Christ. Many people believe angels
are protecting us and are with us every day. Click here for the full lesson!
If you like this lesson, you would love our Teaching Literature Through Art Ebook. This book has all the different genres of literature and illustrations from the original works and then instructions on doing related art. An example might learning about a novel, and then talking about Call of the Wild and looking at original illustrations and then drawing the lead dog. Poetry, tall tales, fantasy, couplets, essays and more are included.
This new book combines the fun of art with the study of literature. Like all of our art through the core books, it is a delightful supplement for visual and kinesthetic learners.
