FIRST EVER Small Paul Chalk Art Seminar!!! How historic!

Gathering supplies for this venture was a little daunting.  Happily, Paul has oodles of broken easels in the garage, collected for spare parts.  Thankfully, James repaired them.   

I was a little worried about my sheets.  But we gathered boards, clips, special chalk art paper, newsprint, easels, my sheets (!), and of course, the chalk, and the students came.  Nine people, three of them our own talented kids, took this first course. 
 Paul would stand at the front, and give the illustration, telling the story, and the eager-beaver students would dutifully reproduce it on their own boards. 
 Notice the eager faces. 
 Wait a minute!  When Paul draws a Jewish house, it never had onion domes on top! 
 And a helicopter?!?!  In the days of Zacchaeus? 
 Methinks these students had some creative juices of their own. 
 This is the guy with the dome. 
 Is that a fire coming out of Zacchaeus' house, Tim? 

 Then they moved along to the colored picture.  Jenny, in red, is the lady who got us started on this venture. 
 Jene is not afraid to get her hands dirty. 
 Evangel's face shows signs of sparring with a chalk stick. 
What a happy ending!  10 pictures of the Lamb and the Cross!

Our prayer:  "Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest that He will send forth labourers into His harvest,  [because].the harvest is plenteous, but the labourers are few."

And:  "Be fruitful and multiply."

Anyone want to sign up for the next seminar?
