Monstrance Art Project! Teaching straight line painting and the True Presence of Jesus!

$ 0.00

Printable instructions (with tutorial images) included in this download!

This is a simple art project to help kids practice painting straight lines. Practice makes perfect and even young kids can learn to paint straight lines, with a little practice! But the best part of this simple art project is that it's a great reminder that Jesus is truly present in the Host at church during Mass.

You will need:

  • Stock paper or construction paper
    (color of your choice - We used black and white)
  • paint - we used:
     white and yellow on black paper
     yellow and red on white paper
  • paintbrush
  • "It is Jesus" Host printable
  • glue
  • newspaper to cover the painting area

Instructions:

First add a quarter size "glop" (that's art talk for large drop!) of paint to one end of your paper.

Now work the paint out in straight lines. Start at the center and go straight out from the center. Do this all the way around. ALWAYS start in the center and go straight out away from the center.
This is the straight line practice. 

My kids made a chant,  "Middle, go straight out...Middle, go straight out...Middle, go straight out."

Hold the paintbrush in the hand of younger children and directed her movement. After a few demonstrations they often can paint the rest on their own. 

Now add a second color to the middle and do the same as the first.  You can decide how many layers you wish to do.

To create the look of a Monstrance, add the stem and base. The stem goes straight down and the base goes straight across. 

Now cut out a host from the download and add your Host in the center of your monstrance.
