Lutheran Artists
I thought it might be fun to share a bit here about Lutheran Biblical artists. So I will post discussions and links to them over a period of time. If you are a Lutheran artist, I'd love to hear from you! Don't be shy!

This engraving is by Julius Schnorr Von Carolsfeld, 1794-1827. He was a German Lutheran artist who later joined an art movement by the Nazarenes. He is best known for his Biblical works.





You can see one of his paintings about Ruth and Boaz at

The London National Gallery.

We also have the engraving of this piece available at the gallery in our new Free Sunday Primer, under free engravings. We have a small downloadable collection of jpgs. by this artist there.

Another marvelous Lutheran artist is Pastor Bill Judt. He is a living artist and has the oldest woodcarver's site on the internet. If your church needs a fine relief carving, you can ask pastor Judt to create one.



He also sells wonderful books on Biblical carving too!

Here is his web address.

Hey John,



If you'd ever like to talk about giving hints and advice concerning your Sunday School classes, crafts and all. Our audience at the gallery would love to hear what you have to say! We have something at the gallery called the Free Sunday Primer. Brandi and I just finished putting it up this week! It is a place where adults can go and get all kinds of ideas for Sunday School, VBS, Christmas plays,etc...



We would be happy to open an article forum for any or all Lutherans to share their ideas about Sunday School. Church is a great place for art to begin. Why, God is the greatest artist there ever was or will be!



Right now, I am working with a team of about five people to develop free lesson plans and that information should be up by next fall. Also, ideas for bulletin boards and Christian crafts will be up much sooner.



Some good friends, just last week, donated even more coloring pages. They came in and saw that what we have so far, is a bit too complicated for very small children. So,they decided to remedy our problem all by themselves by donating their own art work to that particular file for all to use. Wow, what generosity! By next week we should have new coloring pages for six to eight year old kids available.



It is very exciting to see what Jesus will do with the Free Sunday Primer. Never underestimate the value of what you can teach in Sunday School. I remember all the wonderful crafts I made in Sunday School, with great fondness. Of course, I'm not in the least bit prejudicial.

I had the privilage of meeting and working just a bit with a incredible stone carver, Abraham Mohler. He is the grandson of the late artist R. Brownell McGrew.



Abraham lives in the city of St. Louis and works with children at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church. He is a marvelous role model to the kids there. He plays the drums for their small but impressive choir. "Outloud" is the name of the choir.



What an incredible artist he is! You can visit his web site below. His wife is a lovely graphic artist as well, and paints many subjects appealing to children.
