Using fine art, not just clip art or graphic art can add to the meaning of worship or deepen our connection to our faith outside of worship. Below is a piece for upcoming Christ the King Sunday. It could be used on it's own but would be even better for the viewer if a few guiding questions were asked to help the thought process. For example:
- are you attracted to this work?
- what is it that holds your interest?
- does it remind you of anything? (a story, a memory, an idea?)
- what is your eye first drawn to?
- how do you think it was made?
- what do you know about the culture of the time the artist made this?
- do you recognize any symbols in this art?
- can you extend the scene? what might have happened right prior or after this moment?
