Art Project on Heaven: A Simple but Meaningful Art Lesson

art-lesson-on-heaven

This wonderful art project you can do with your kids will spark great, meaningful conversation. It can be done around the kitchen table following a morning devotion, or in the afternoon when the kids get bored and are looking for something to do. Or even in your neighborhood as an outreach during the summer. Whenever you decide to do it, here are some things to keep in mind as you embark together on an art project on heaven.

Start with Scripture

Start by opening your Bible and reading verses about heaven. We read Revelation 22:1-6. The imageryStart-with-the-Bible used in this passage gives a great visual for your mind. You can also read other verses that describe heaven (Rev 19; Rev 20; Gen 1:8; Isa 66:1; Luke 15:7, 18:22; Col 1:5; 1 Pet 1:4). Each of these Scriptures discusses a different aspect of heaven.

Talk with your kids about the beauty and wonder of heaven; the sights and sounds that describe heaven. Engage their hearts and minds as you talk about the passages.

Use it as an opportunity, if you feel led, to talk about the gospel and heaven.

Gather Materials

  • white paper
  • pencils
  • crayons/pens/colored pencils

Begin Drawing!

After reading the Bible, discussing heaven, and gathering your materials, have your kids draw what they think heaven will look like based on what you read. It’s super fun to do it along with them. If needed, you may re-read a section of Scripture as you start to draw.Art-project-on-heaven-1Art-project-on-heaven-2Art-project-on-heaven-3

 

Don’t overthink this exercise. Just start drawing. You can advise your kids to start by sketching their idea with pencil first and coloring it in later with their medium of choice.

End with Sharing Time

After everyone is finished, have your kids stand up and describe what they drew. Have them tell you about their picture. In doing so, you will get an insight into their hearts and they will get practice speaking in front of a group.
