Symbols of hope


Using the theme of symbols, student members of the Hope Center have embarked on a painting project based on the symbols of the Christian faith.


Students learned how to transfer the symbol onto canvas using a projected image.


Students have been learning how to add detail and texture to the background of their canvas.


After tracing their symbols with permanent marker, students have continued to add texture and layers of color to the background of their canvas.


This has been a fun process for the students at the Hope Center.


This project has encouraged the students to reflect on the symbol and it’s meaning as they add their own input into the paintings.


We are taking a break from this painting project until the holidays have passed.  The students are learning that the process of creating a painting requires patience and develops skills, thoughtfulness and understanding.
