Scriptural Sampler:

1) "Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock" Matthew 7:24
Emphasis: building our lives on the Word of God and making wise choices based on a Scriptural foundation. Two stories about facing difficulty inspire discussion—being stranded on a road without cell coverage and being tempted to cheat on a test. The unit features a brief overview of the history of Christianity in art and the illuminated Gospels copied by monks on parchment paper with mention of a contemporary artist, Makoto Fujimura, who illuminated the four Gospels for the 400th anniversary on the King James Bible in 2011.

2) "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works" Matthew 5:16
Emphasis: on Matthew 5:14 and 15 that says, "Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house." Students are encouraged to "But be ye does of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves" according to James 1:22 and to identify ways of letting their lights shine and doing good works in the classroom, during break, at the dinner table and while watching sports. The study of art focuses on the use of light to define the planes of a face in portraiture, to emphasize a focal point, and as a study in the Impressionist movement.

3) "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." Hebrews 13:8
Emphasis: the secure and trustworthy nature of God and His Word. Our desire to change rules to suit our needs is explored along with the resulting challenges those continuing changes could create. The value of God’s unchanging nature is appreciated more and more as the study continues. A parallel is drawn to point of view, or perspective, in art work, and drawing from different angles leads to appreciate how our perspective changes according to the way we view something.

4) "Let all things be done decently and in order." I Corinthians 14:40
Emphasis: The consistency of patterns that God has created—the ebb and flow of tides, the rainbow following a storm, the recurrence of the seasons—are recognized as patterns that recur consistently and in an orderly way. In a similar way, a pattern in artwork is one that repeats in a way that is consistent and predictable. Patterns in nature as well as patterns created by artists are examined. Rythym, unity, movement, and balance are all explored as well, and students create motifs and patterns of their own.
