Schedule High School Art Class Near You!

We have developed a week long comprehensive fine art high school credit. We can come and teach for a week. In the 20 hour high school art credit class, students do vocabulary every day, learn the elements and principles of art, learn art history and also techniques in a variety of media.  The goal is an excellent visual portfolio of student work and to pass a final on the elements and principles of art shown in a final test/project.  I am offering the class at Faith Christian Academy in Kansas City the last week of June 2017 this year for the third year in a row, and would love to schedule one with your students!  
Students can continue on to get AP credit if they choose to do so through our online program afterwards with Sharon Jeffus. We will mentor students. Cost is $300 for two semesters for the online program.
We  also do mission trips to create beauty at homeless missions and community centers. Possible trips include going to Israel in where students can do murals at Ariel University, along with many art and sightseeing opportunities. Local opportunities are also available in KC to do murals at City Union Mission, go to the Nelson Art Museum for the day and spend a day working with professional Christian artists from the area.  Please contact me for more information. 
I will have a studio set up in Kansas City soon. 
Many blessings.  S. Jeffus
We also have free art lessons available HERE.

Using Visual Images to Show Gospel Truths

Are you a business or ministry needing graphic art work?  Visual Manna Academy can help you.  Our students are the best of the best and are trained to help!  What can you do with our artists?

  1. Put art up that shows a visual gospel and you believe is anointed. Some can be a catalyst and conversation starter to share your testimony. Have murals done in strategic places. 
  2. Do an outreach such as a paint party as an activity that your business provides. We do paint parties for businesses and churches with the object of bringing people into the church, and creating beautiful images that impact society.  
  3. Fill the gap teaching art and crafts to children that don’t normally have the opportunity.
  4. Do face painting as an outreach.
