In the midst of the hustle and bustle, I stopped a few times to take it all in:
parents enjoying their child’s artwork, students playing beautiful music on the keyboard, adults and kids chatting, laughing,
tasting delectable cupcakes and other treats, 5th grade students serving punch, all in all a beautiful evening.
It’s times like this, that one realizes the power of art to bring beauty and respite for our souls,
to “draw” people together, to revive, inspire, and bring joy.
This was certainly the case last Tuesday evening, April 27th, when Redeemer School had its first ever spring art show, called Art4Him, for the entire student body, Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Everything was wonderful, and I mean EVERYTHING, from the student program prior to the show, to the art these students have created throughout the year, to the sumptious treats at the reception, to the music our students provided, to the wonderful attendance by parents, students and faculty.
The thought crossed my mind…this is glory…we’re all partakers of it, and contributers to it.
I was thankful to be the art teacher at this school, and thankful to have played a small part in such a glorious evening.

What a terrific acknowledgment of your students’ work–and of yours!
this looks so nice here and what fun everyone seemed to have, first making the art and then enjoying the art! Thanks for sharing.
thanks for taking time to preserve this day in your blog. It was a great testament to the glory of God in the minds and hearts of little children. Would you mind if I forward the link to Redeemer teachers? or have you done that already?
awesome! I’ve always loved kids’ paintings. They are just so PURE!
That’s great! Children’s drawings are happiness makers!
Thank you for sharing these photographs of an awesome evening. It was a memorable time for our family.
The time of fellowship, along with the art by our children and the fabulous food, was wonderful.
Ahhh! the work is delightful and you should be proud of the support you gave. Nicely done.
What a wonderful evening! I miss all the school things (my sons are grown). That charcoal portrait is amazing, BTW … nancy
