As I’ve mentioned before, I work part-time at my church in the children’s ministry department. This “jobby” as I like to call it has been a God-send for me. When I was hired, the woman I work for was really excited to learn that I am an artist. The cool thing is that she has me using my creativity all the time.
I work with grades one, two, and three, and this month’s topic is Self-Control. The illustration to go with it is video games. I’m sure you’ve never gotten out of control while playing video games ;), but I certainly have. **Tangent: My husband Eric loves to play Zelda and I love to watch. One time he convinced me to give it a shot. I played for ten or fifteen minutes and at the end of that time I may or may not have yelled at and insulted Eric and stormed out of the room. I was horrible at it!** Anyway, for the stage backdrop I thought it would be cool to do something video-gamed theme and I chose my favorite: Mario.
The back wall of the stage is already a blue-violet color so it worked for the sky. I used craft paper and permanent markers to make everything else.
I apologize for the horrible pictures. My camera hasn’t been the same since I dropped it.
Anyway, I’m curious about you. Do you play video games? If so, what’s your favorite?
