I'm working on an art workshop lesson for the story of Jesus the boy talking to the elders in the Temple, his parents leaving him behind, etc.
I'd like to focus on the idea of Jesus as a role model = wanting to talk to his teachers.
I've been thinking about how to create a big piece of hallway art on the subject that would incorporate the kid's faces, in learning poses with their teacher, but they are all dressed in 1st C A.D. garb with a Temple surrounding. By putting our kids in the setting, we'd be making a statement to them and to parents. The kicker: must be able to complete in 30 minutes.
Open to other ideas as well.
Even if you have a glimpse of a crazy idea, or medium to work in, please post it, as it may just be the catalyst I'm looking for. This is for Rotation, ages 6-12.
