Create and Shine Forth

I was looking at the board in the foyer at church on Sunday and a particular flyer caught my attention.  An International Art Competition for Youth based on the 2012 Mutual Theme, "Arise and Shine Forth".
*
The Church History Museum invites the youth of the Church to create works of art that express what the Lord's request "Arise and Shine Forth" means to them.  What a wonderful opportunity for our youth!
*
Online submissions will begin to be accepted January 2, 2012.  Now is a great time to get them thinking about the theme and encouraging them to create.
*
Here are a few ideas:
  • If there are youth leaders or others within your wards who know how to paint with oils, watercolors, pastels, ink or pencil - find out if they are willing to offer instruction to youth who may be interested in developing the particular skill.
  • Maybe even set aside a mutual night for art instruction.  We did this a couple years ago, in preparation for our YW in Excellence: Color Me Beautiful.  The girls were taught how to create a portrait of themselves in pastels.  It was a wonderful night.  And the artwork was incredible.
