The Book of Mark Art

Posted on:

The Gospel of Mark is such a unique book in the Bible! It is a quick tour through the life of Christ. We have been using this text in Sophomore Bible as a way to find out more about Christ and hopefully begin to let His life change our own.

We have been reading the text, summarizing the text, acting it out, and yes, even drawing it! Local scholar Tim Mackie from The Bible Project says that drawing the Scriptures is a great way to remember the Scriptures. So as we have been reading through Mark’s Gospel I have asked the students to draw what they are learning. Here is the fruit of their labor!

Sophomore students reading, studying, and then acting it out!

Jane Eyre Art

In a creative choice project, a handful of AP Lit students used art as their medium after reading Jane Eyre. As a culminating project, students chose to create a work of art, write character journals, write and perform original songs or poems, or ‘teach’ about a modern theme from the novel through a Ted Talk and presentation.

Take a look as some of the impressive artwork from our seniors below!

Artwork from 2017 Westside grad Kylee Wiseman was recently highlighted (on the cover!) of one of the premier birding magazines, American Birding. An incredible artist, and herself an avid birder, what an honor for Kylee’s work to be a feature of their October 2017 issue.

Congratulations Kylee!

Hannah will be joining the WCHS team and teaching Intro to Art, Advanced Art, AP Studio Art, Digital Design, and Yearbook.

I have been teaching high school for 7 years, and love it! I have my BA in Bible and Theology from Biola, my teaching license for Art from UCLA, and am currently working on my MA in Bible and Theology at Western Seminary in Portland. I love teaching at a Christian school because it allows the unique freedom to teach and create art with joy, purpose and meaning as artists ourselves created in God’s image.
