Color angels in stained glass...

John Green's book above, my teachers sample below.


       One of my favorite coloring books published by Dover is by John Green. This collection of angels is printed on translucent vellum and little ones can hang up their color creations in the windows to watch the sunlight illuminate their progress.
       Teachers may download free samples of a few images to color themselves before purchasing the entire collection. I keep a book of sample pages on file to share coloring ideas with my companions or students.
       This coloring page demonstrates how I've applied pressure to my colored pencils in order to demonstrate gradation. Mastering a coloring skill such as this one is of primary importance when learning how to draw or paint more complicated art works. 
       Coloring books afford a fun and inexpensive way for students to practice gradation skills over and over, without becoming bored or frustrated with the repetitive process.

Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, T.O.S.F. (German: Heilige Elisabeth von Thüringen, Hungarian: Árpád-házi Szent Erzsébet, 7 July 1207 – 17 November 1231), also known as Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia, was a princess of the Kingdom of Hungary, Landgravine of Thuringia, Germany, and a greatly venerated Catholic saint who was an early member of the Third Order of St. Francis, by which she is honored as its patroness. Elizabeth was married at the age of 14, and widowed at 20. After her husband's death she sent her children away and regained her dowry, using the money to build a hospital where she herself served the sick. She became a symbol of Christian charity after her death at the age of 24 and was quickly canonized. Read more...

Humble Hermits coloring page

Description of The Coloring Page:hermits, crow, cave, cross, poverty, bare feet, hoods, wilderness,

       In Christianity, the term was originally applied to a Christian who lives the eremitic life out of a religious conviction, namely the Desert Theology of the Old Testament (i.e., the 40 years wandering in the desert that was meant to bring about a change of heart).
       In the Christian tradition the eremitic life is an early form of monastic living that preceded the monastic life in the cenobium. The Rule of St Benedict (ch. 1) lists hermits among four kinds of monks. In the Roman Catholic Church, in addition to hermits who are members of religious institutes, the Canon law (canon 603) recognizes also consecrated hermits under the direction of their diocesan bishop as members of the consecrated life. The same is true in many parts of the Anglican Communion, including the Episcopal Church in the US, although in the canon law of the Episcopal Church they are referred to as "solitaries" rather than "hermits".
