Give it Away

Last month I helped out with a painting class for children involved in our church's Power Kids youth program.  They were to paint canvases that were inspired by different kid's programs and graphics associated with our church.  


Our main philosophy in our church is "Know it, Live it, and Give it Away".  This means we want people to know the story of Jesus, live it out in community together, and give the story of Jesus away to our world.  

My son Killian was a part of this class and decided to incorporate this theme into his art and I just love what he came up with!  

It gave me such joy watching his ideas stirring up in his face as he squirted his paints on his plate. I LOVE watching kids' ideas unfold as they express themselves in ways I would have never thought of!  

I thought it was so creative to use the "Power Kids" symbol for the nose and eyes:-)  

These kids were "giving it away" with their time and creativity as they helped serve the church by providing beautiful artwork to dot the walls of our buildings.  

I couldn't help myself from making one myself (center canvas here) and it was so much fun!


All of the canvases came together to make a beautiful statement on these walls and I love how there is such unity because of the repeating color palette.  This was a great way to show kids how using their talents can be used to encourage other people and it can be fun to "give it away"!
