Splatter Paint!

18 05 2012

The dilemma: This particular piece of artwork, displayed proudly in the girls’ bathroom in our church youth wing, doesn’t exactly scream, “We’re hip and cool and relevant to teenagers!” (There was a similar piece in the boys’ bathroom)

The process: I pulled aside three girls during our after-school program, presented them with two blank canvases, and commissioned them to create something a little more youth-friendly. They immediately went to work, splattering paint onto the canvas and their faces.

The product: Love what they came up with!


The caveat: As soon as they were installed, my high school boys immediately commented on the “potty humor” of the chosen Bible verses. Oh, well…the girls are still loving the transformation!
