Nicole Plymesser Nelson
Nicole has been teaching art for 20 years—in elementary and high schools, retail settings, private lessons, and workshops. All along she has written her own curriculum that works for all ages and abilities. Nicole also has a successful illustration business that showcases her faith. She designs the illustrations for the studies so that all audiences will feel comfortable using art to study God’s Word.
What to expect from Nicole
The goal is for you to use art methods to meditate, pray and connect with God on an even deeper level-- taking time to create will allow God to flow through your hands and fingers as you ALLOW HIS WORDS to INSPIRE YOU! As you work, pray over the images and words. Brain science shows that creating artwork actually creates more connections in the brain, making information easier to remember. You will be amazed at how this transforms your study and recall of the lessons!
Three options are available for you:
· Read the scriptures and create your own design in your Bible or faithjournal.
· use the coloring page versions—adding color in your media of choice
or use the mini versions to trace into your Bible or faith art journal
