Praise and Paint

Thursday

April 9th   6:30 PM


Join us for a night of worship, art and connection on Maundy or Holy Thursday. Maundy Thursday is the night that Jesus broke bread with His disciples and washed their feet during the Last Supper.  The word "Maundy" comes from the Latin word "command" and refers to Jesus' commandment to "Love one another as I have loved you"  Join us as we gather together in love and fellowship on this very special day. 


8th Grade Student Leader, Camden Haines, will be leading us in a watercolor painting for those who want to participate.  Below you will find a detailed supply list and instructions to print and prepare your template. The supplies you need are pretty minimal.  You do not need to have previous painting experience, just a positive attitude and willingness to try!

You don't have to be an "artist" to join.  This night is all about gathering to worship the Lord together.  

No pressure to create a masterpiece!  But if you want to create a masterpiece Camden will be guiding us step by step!

PRep for WaterColor PAinting

Supplies (Watercolors):

  • Paints - Doesn’t have to be anything fancy, you just need some basic colors. Crayola watercolors are fine! 
  • Brush(es) – Relatively small, round brush or two. I will be using a #6 round and a #0 rigger
  • Watercolor paper or Cardstock – Use what you have, but I will be using ARCHES 300lb Cold Press w/c paper, 100% cotton

Optional Supplies (Watercolors):

  • Hairdryer – Will dry your painting a lot quicker and make your life easier
  • Extra Palette – If your paints don’t come with a mixing palette, a white porcelain or gloss paper plate will work just fine

 

Instructions to prepare your template:

If you are using colored pencils, other dry media, or watercolor with cardstock, you can just print the template to color it in. I you are using VERY heavy cardstock or watercolor paper, you will need to transfer the image.

  • Print the template on regular printer paper
  • Take a pencil and cover the back of the template with graphite
  • Flip over and lay on the w/c or cardstock paper
  • Trace the template, applying pressure

TIP – Use a piece of masking/painter’s tape to hold the two pieces of paper together while transferring


PLEASE NOTE: if you don’t have these supplies to paint, its OK! Just print out the template and color it in with whatever you have…. or come and create your own design with whatever supplies you have… or just come watch and worship with us…
