Fruit of the Spirit Mosaics
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness ...." Galatians 5:22-23. This is the theme of our Bible class this year and the topic of our studies. We have been looking at the fruit of love for the first few weeks of school. You know me, always wanting to tie art into everything! So here it is!
It can be difficult for students to free hand drawings, so again for this project I went online and Googled color pages of fruit and printed off several kinds. The student chose the fruit they wanted to do and a color of construction paper. I instructed them to lay the color page on top of the construction paper and trace over the drawing with a firm hand leaving a dented marking on the construction paper. After completing this stage, they retraced the markings with a pencil. With this light outline, they proceeded to cut scrap construction paper and glue them in place leaving space between each tile of paper.
Needless to say, I just loved how they turned out! Now it is my hope that we will produce the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives as beautifully as we made these projects.
