Morgan's Art Corner

Trinity is very fortunate to have an artist in residence! Add to that the fact the artist gives free art sessions to children every Wednesday night at 6:00 pm and you really have a winner!  Thanks to Morgan Wright's Children's Art Ministry, many of our neighborhood children have been exposed to the wonderful world of art. Recently Morgan offered six free sessions to adults after church service on Sunday. Below is a portfolio of some of the art works going on in Morgan's Art Corner!  

Wednesday Nite Art Class

Come join the fun! Every Wednesday night at 6:00 pm, Morgan holds a free art class on the Trinity UCC campus for the community kids. Everyone has a great time, including the adults who supervise.  Bring your kids for a fun filled evening where Morgan teaches them in a festive and interesting way how to appreciate the beautiful and engaging world of art! For more information, contact the church office at 727-321-1088.  We are always looking for adult volunteers so please contact the office of you can help!

Leaves of Gold

Jacquie's leaves are finished! They are exquisite!   Jacquie says she has done a lot of painting before, but only house painting!  We are very impressed with this beautiful work of art and cannot believe this is the work of an amateur.  You should give Morgan's class a try--you too can find the budding artist within you!  Every Sunday after church services, Morgan has a free art class for all who are interested.  You will be surprised what you can do and the beauty you can create!

Sunday Art Class

Morgan is offering a free art class right after worship service for anyone who would like to try their hand at painting.  This is a great opportunity to awaken the sleeping artist within you!  Come join the fun!

New Masterpieces!

Colleen Hafner drew and painted these beautiful flowers!

Jackie's Leaves!  Masterful!

Sharon's Leaves! Exquisite!

Mary's Trees! Exciting!

First Masterpieces are Finished!

 


The three adults who started the class March 20th after church have finished their first pictures!  Sharon Dunaway-Alt, Susan Gilbert and Don Ketterer are very proud of their first art works! And Morgan made it fun and easy! Want a creative hour away to de-stress?  Take advantage of Morgan's art classes! 

Jackie Gets In On The Fun!

Jackie Shewmaker joined the art class and  her first project was trees. Those trees are looking pretty excellent, Jackie!  You might be giving the wannabes above some stiff competition! Morgan makes art class interesting and easy. You've actually painted a tree of two before you even know what's happening. Who knew art could be for everyone?  Won't you give it a try? 

Pastor Jeanette Tries Her Hand


Week Two Pastor Jeanette got in on the fun! Here is a photo of her "practice" page. As you can tell, we have the makings of a great artist here! Can't wait to see what's next!
Actually the "trees in the winter" picture is next, but what will they look like? So far, we have all had individual creative differences in our trees. This is so much fun!

Don Paints a Flower!


Don is a little ahead of the rest of us. He's already created a flower!  The flower is created by negative space painting. In other words he painted the bluish-green color around a pencil sketch on the white paper.  Pretty cool, eh? 

You should think about joining us. There are still four weeks left!  It's a very stress free, fun, creative hour. 

Thank you, Morgan, for the great opportunity!
