Clement Kids Art

Introducing Kids to the Joy of Art

Clement Arts is proud to present Clement Kids Art — a place for kids, ages 6-18, to discover the joy of art. Kids will develop the skills they need to express themselves and reflect the beauty of the world around us.

About the Semester

I’ll Have You In Stitches

This class puts a modern spin on the basics of hand stitching. Kids 7 and up will learn a variety of hand stitching skills, including a running stitch, back stitch, whip stitch, crochet, and hopefully many more. They will learn how to make classic gifts for friends and family or explore how to layer their new skills into a bohemian style work of art. As the students are discipled using the model of Lydia from scripture, we will work together to create pieces that they can choose to sell at the next clement arts adoption fundraiser to show them that even at their age they are more than able to create beautiful things as a blessing to themselves and others.

Sermon Sketchnotes and Artful Devotions

This class is an introduction to visual notetaking for Sunday mornings and private devotions. Visual notetaking increases your engagement with and retention of the sermon, and makes you more likely to revisit your notes. We will start by learning the basics of Sermon Sketchnotes including: color, layout, doodling, text hierarchy and letter. Then we will unlock artful devotion (also known as Bible Journaling). We will cover how to study the Word for yourself to draw out life application, ways to share the Word with others all the while creating fun illustrations.

Wonderfully Made: Fearless Mixed Media Overview

One’s artistic ability and self-worth in Christ often fight the same battles. We fall into cycles of comparison that lead us to judge ourselves, become deaf to encouraging words, and believe God’s promises might not apply to us. Through artful worship our prayer is that each participant is empowered to study and hear the Word of God for themselves and express their uniqueness with various art mediums. Each week will build on the previous week’s class. We will spend some time in brush lettering, ink washes, watercolors, watercolor pencils, acrylics, collage, textures and finally combining all to create mixed media projects.

Art Around the World

Matthew 28:19 says, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” In this class, we will create various art pieces from all around the world. This will help us not only understand the joy of making, but to help us understand who Jesus is commanding us to disciple. In every class, we will spend time praying for the people group/missionaries discussed in class and then make an art piece in a technique and medium from that region.

About the Instructors

Amanda Newman – Stitching Instructor

Amanda Newman is a wife and mother of two children who are her biggest supporters and motivators. From an early age, she was an eager student of all the arts. She has been blessed to be surrounded by women with a variety of hand stitching skills, passed down to them through generations. She’s very excited to share these and other techniques she has learned with the next generation of eager students. As Amanda has grown up, those little early investments have grown into a life calling to mission work in Rwanda Africa where she gets to teach the women there skills to create products that she brings home to sell for them. It has grown into a business called COPO that sells their products all over the United States. Amanda sees the Lord answer in her own life over and over her prayer from Psalm 90:17 “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us– yes, establish the work of our hands.” She cannot wait to see what the Lord does with the work of those little hands she is trusted with.

Raven Henderson – Sermon Sketchnotes and Wonderfully Made Instructor

Raven Henderson has a professional background in the fine art galleries, graphic recorder, music industry, non-profits, and ministry work. Raven has done live graphic recording for an astronaut, Google Innovator, and countless sermons. She has even created an online community for Sermon Sketchnoters around the world. Through it all she has cultivated a private practice of using art as a mobile way to journal, relax and worship. Even art journaling while co-leading a mission team in Haiti. Raven loves all things artsy craftsy; loves learning; and loves sharing. Her faith is evident in all she does and creates.

Renato Ferreira – Art Around the World Instructor

Renato has enjoyed creating art ever since he was a little boy. In the process of becoming saved and knowing the Lord, his art has expanded and become a way to reflect on his spiritual growth as well as a tool used to share the gospel. Renato received a BFA in art education and photography from the University of Georgia as well as his MA in art education from Piedmont College. He has taught art in public education for three years at an elementary school and is now teaching at Rainey-McCullers School of the Arts. Renato is happily married to Elizabeth Bennett Ferreira and is enjoying his move to Columbus. Renato feels blessed to know the joy of the Lord and is excited about sharing that with his students through making art at Clement Arts.
