Looking at Art
Many of our towns and cities have Art Galleries which have examples of religious art. Indeed many of the paintings will have originally been commissioned by the Church and designed to be displayed in churches.
Find a piece of religious art which appeals to you.
- Does it depict a story from the Bible or a Saint?
- Is there information about the story available?
- What is the general mood of the picture?
- Choose a figure in the painting. What attracts you to them? What qualities does the person have?
If you are unable to get to a gallery have a look at the Your Paintings website and search for ‘Jesus’
