Are there aspiring young Rembrandts, Monets, or Renoirs in your congregation? Find out by having your congregation’s budding artists create artwork for display at the National Children’s Ministry Conference July 11-13 in Schaumburg, Ill.
All LCMS congregations are invited to submit artwork, created by children ages 3-12, based on one of the conferences themes: “Christ,” “Children,” or “Community.” One selection per theme category is permitted for a maximum of three submissions per congregation.
The artwork, which must be submitted by June 1, will be exhibited at the conference and available for “purchase” through donations by conference participants. All donations received will be given in the name of the artists to charitable children’s organizations. The artwork also will be featured in an online exhibit on the LCMS Children’s Ministry Web site.
Faculty of the Concordia University Chicago Art Department will present a special award of merit for each of the three categories.
