I asked the middle school students I taught in Romania to collage what they were thinking.
I had the students draw their faces or themselves as best as they could, and then add a giant thinking bubble above their heads. Then they glued down pictures from magazines that represented what they were thinking.
Here I am with several students as they find magazine pictures for their thinking bubbles.
The artwork may be a springboard for sharing stories, or to just start a conversation, and possibly have a time of prayer.
Dear Marcia, Hi, I came across your site through Kara Tippett’s blog. Though I do not know you, I am so sorry that your cancer has returned and am praying for your strength, healing, and peace. God is with you! What a blessing to have your daughters by your side. I pray that this time of being together will be a blessing and comfort to you all.
Also, I would like to say that I am impressed with the amazing work you have done in helping people through these Art Engaging Stories! This gives me ideas as I have never seen anything quite like this. It is so beautiful to see all of the Story Ropes representing peoples lives, and the collages too. Thank you so much for what you have done to make a difference in the lives of others. God Bless You! Kim Lineaweaver ( :
