Middle school visual arts students illustrate ‘one another’ statements
Middle School Principal Joseph Antonio’s hope for the 2022-2023 school year is that middle school students would love “one another” as the Bible calls them to.
On the first day of school, Antonio spoke to middle school students about the 59 ‘one another’ statements in the Bible that teach believers how to relate to their brothers and sisters in Christ. Antonio compiled a prayer of these ‘one another’ verses from scripture:
“May we accept one another, serve one another, speak highly of one another, bear with one another, encourage one another, be kind to one another, help one another, and be at peace with one another. May we rejoice with one another and weep with one another. May we be quick to confess to one another, forgive one another, and reconcile with one another. May we feel loved and cherished by one another. May we taste and see Jesus in one another. May we be a part of seeing your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven when we will one day stand before the throne with one another.”
Middle school art teacher Heather Neimann challenged her students to complete a project illustrating one or all of the ‘one another’ statements.
“I chose to illustrate ‘be kind’ because there are always opportunities to be kind,” says Weezie Moore ‘27.
Students designed the statements using an online design tool from Adobe called Express.
“It’s a great way for beginner digital art students to learn composition and graphic design concepts with an easy-to-learn tool. This will help them as they learn more complex programs later in the semester,” explains Neimann.
Each poster is unique and will be displayed in a middle school classroom.
“I’m excited for everyone to see all the different styles and for the ‘one another’ theme to be displayed in every class,” reflects Anastasia Lamas ‘27.
