Add Bible Scripture to your artwork. That is the main message of Worldwide Evangelism Christian Artist Network (WeCAN). They admonish every Christian visual artist worldwide to donate art to various organization, charities and entities ( such as orphanages, hospitals and care homes). By adding Bible Scripture to each peice of art donated, it becomes a tool for evangelism to encourage, enlighten and inspire those receiving it.

  

Basically, you can add Bible Scripture to your canvas, the frames around the images, the base of sculpture or include it mixed media peices. Visit the website to see how God has already used  the talents of visual artists to make impact in the lives of children using scripture in artwork. This is a great way begin or develop an art ministry. Its a wonderful idea for you to do on your own or with a group of your fellow artists.

“Young artists do not often fit in well with church sponsored youth programs that emphasize physical recreation. To close the gap, Masterpiece Ministries was founded in 1995 to help young people identify and develop their gifts in the arts and to encourage them to become whole hearted followers of Jesus Christ”. This is the mission and vision of this wonderful visual arts ministry.

Basically if you are a visual artist and would like to develop or host a program for young talented artists at your church you can contact them on ideas to get started.

They also need creative visual artists (drawing, painting, sculpture etc) with a strong commitment to Christ to teach young people about Christ and the arts. If you have a heart for sharing Christ and art with youth, this is a good program to get involved in!

According to Founder Mary Ann Rosser, Kinship Ministries’  goal is to “win as many people as we can for Christ… and to give artists a venue to display, share, and use their skills, talents and gifts to reach people by building relationships within their particular area of expertise.”

Basically they’re looking for talented visual artists (that’s you) who’d like to donate beautiful artwork with a drug/alcohol prevention message that will positively impact youth (and others) as part of their Faith Community Health Ministries outreach and future programs. If you’re into art trading cards this is perfect!

They’re also looking for visual artists willing to volunteer time to enrich lives through art exhibitions, demonstrations and classes.  Contact them to get started!
