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.

They have sponsored a number of well-attended shows, wonderful exhibitions, and great competitions around the world.


Basically if you’re an artist looking for venues to help others experience the joys of art here’s a good one to consider. You can donate a piece to their permanent collection.
