Zion Project Description & Proposal Sketches

Zion Lutheran Church, 709 6th Street in Wausau, was seeking high school art students to create a series of paintings based on the Stations of the Cross.  The paintings are to be unveiled during 2014 Easter services and remain on display in the church afterward.

The eight students who volunteered to take on this project have met with Pastor Gjerde of Zion Lutheran to plan and sign contracts of completion and payment.

This group has met each week to develop ideas, coordinate compositions, and create a sense of unity throughout their works.  Below are the completed proposal sketches for the eight stations that our students will be eventually painting.  This is a pretty monumental project, but we're off to a good start.  Check back soon to see their progress on the paintings!

Painting F.A.C.E. Windows

Painting 2 students paint the Family And Consumer Education Foods Room hallway windows.  Working from reference photos, compositions were drawn on the hallway side of glass with dry erase markers by Painting 4 student, Dezi Spoores.  Outlines were then painted in black with brushes on the inside of windows.  Finally, all fruits and vegetables were filled using a fingerpainting method.

Let us know what you think of our work!

Completed panels: Basket of peppers, red onions, & tomatoes.
