PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique.
OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: "Come and listen, all you who fear God; Let me tell you what he has done for me." Psalm 66:16, NIV. We have a message and we should be active in letting others know what God has done in our lives. He has given all of us blessings and whatever we do in art or work or home should be a way of expressing thankfulness and telling others we have a loving father who blesses his children. Do not use your gifts of art or any other gift selfishly but we should use our gifts to serve others and glorify God.
