Baptism + Water Stories in the Bible Art

We are working on reviewing the Sacraments of Initiation in my classroom, and our adding our collections of projects, notes, and art into our Fulton Sheen notebooks.  I've actually already blogged about how we notebook the Sacraments, so this is not a new activity for me...however, I was so impressed with the kids' art this year that I wanted to share a few more examples.

On our Baptism pages, we add a Baptismal certificate, a set of Baptismal promises, and a "stained glass" representation of a Bible story that connects with Baptism.  You can see directions for how we made this art project, as well as get printables for all of the other Baptism activities in this post.

So without further ado, check these out:

Here we have Noah's Ark as well as Moses parting the Red Sea: (I love the color in these two!)

Here we have baby Moses being placed in the Nile by his mother, and I think the perspectives used by these artists was very unique:

These stories were both firsts for me this year even though I have done this project with several classes now- Jonah & the big fish and Jesus with the Woman at the Well:
And this was also a new story this year- a representation of the miraculous catch of fish when Jesus called Peter:

I love the kids' talent and seeing how they can take the same project with the same instructions and make it their own.  After creating their art, they had to do a little quick journal writing on how that Bible story connects with the Sacrament of Baptism. (For inspiration before beginning this art project, we brainstormed as a class all of the Bible stories we could think of that had to do with water.  The kids then had to read that story before beginning their art project- it was a great way to get them diving into Scripture and involving their choice!)

You can see a completed notebook page here:
