#5 Session of Culture Care- Charcoal Still Life

  SUPPLIES NEEDED: PAPER LIKE VELLUM, VINE CHARCOAL, HARD CHARCOAL, KNEADED ERASER, PRINTS OF REFERENCE PHOTOS, and tissues. Welcome to #5 and the last of the series on Culture Care.  We have been reading the book by Makoto Fujimura and doing a different medium of art with every new set of chapters.  We use art to slow down and listen to what God is saying to each of us.  He is always speaking, we need to purposefully listen to Him.  I hope that you have enjoyed this series and would love to hear what you have learned.  Take some time at the end of each session and look at your art and verbalize the concepts or thoughts it helps you remember.  I would love for you to comment on how this series has been helpful or inspiring to you.  You can always write to me at Enjoy this 5th video!

True art should pose questions.
