SOAR! The Beginning of a New Project

Posted: January 23, 2023 in Uncategorized

Every year, it is my honor to be a part of a great ministry called Haven Camp, held by Delta Lake Bible Conference in Rome, NY. Haven Camp is a week long summer camp for Adult’s with developmental disabilities. It is such a joy to me, and it’s a huge undertaking, so I am getting started. Our theme this year is based on Isaiah 40:31. “Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. They will mount up on wings like eagles, “but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” So how do I start a project like this. Well, of course we begin with prayer. Then I begin to plan out the eight sessions by figuring out topics to go along with the theme. I begin to select texts for each passage, and because I utilize art in my presentations, I begin to figure out images that will make sense to the campers. Remember this is not about art for art sake, the art is a tool to “draw” the people in to the story. I need to come up wit things that fits the topic and that I can render in acrylic paint in less than ten minutes. From there sketches and study begin to flesh things out.

Graphically, one of the first things I do is create my logo for the week. This helps me to develop the other media for the sessions. This year, I am planning an animated bump that I will use at the beginning of each session. I don’t have a lot of the world done yet. but I have started to develop the graphics. Here is a sampling.

    Pastor Dave, I LOVE this! What a beautiful way to use your gift and talents! If you ever want to look through my prophetic artwork again for ideas or just to copy, please feel free to do so. I’m happy to share anything that God has given me in a “snapshot”….He is the Creator, after all, and all the glory goes to Him no matter who brings it forth!
    Have a blessed day!
