Waterfalls with Paul Oman
An Art and the Word CollaborativeOn July 14th, 2012, at beautiful Minnehaha Falls Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Paul Oman, pastor and artist, taught local artists how to empower their art with the Word of God and coordinate the application of color, composition, and contrast to story and emotion. His expertise and tips benefited artists of all levels, inspiring them toward greater expression of their faith in their visual art. The seminar was sponsored by Great Commission Artists, a network of Christians dedicated to leading people to Christ through the visual arts. Their goal is to create beauty for the glory of God and connect artists from all denominations in meaningful fellowship. Art lies within Christians of all ages. Join us as we explore how to release this treasure into our worship, the life of our local churches, and the world around us.
