A class in art is a typical example of an inspirational art gathering. People of all ages who are fascinated by this art feels have their own interpretation to each piece, which they alone can understand and interpret through painting. A teacher's role when conducting workshops that involve painting is to encourage the students bring out their creative side and put it in an output; the pooling of their minds to make their hands move in making the painting, while taking into consideration the values they have learned in their lifetime. With this in mind, they may be able to create an "obra-maestra" the same as our painting masters like Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo; who have already made painting as their lives.
The teacher is the lead motivator in an art painting class. With his inspirational art knowledge and attitude; coupled with his skill in painting, students are able to express themselves spontaneously by putting to work what they have already created in their minds. Because of this, students are drawn to imagine, create a picture, and put the idea to work in the creation of a drawing which originally came from the mind. When they have knowledge of christian art, such as the Last Supper, Baptism of Jesus, The Finding of Jesus in the Temple and many other such scenes that comes into their minds, the possibility of creating an art that is based and similar to what the contemporary painters have created is high.
In the modern times, Christian art can be used as a means of expression of sentiments by individuals towards the people that surround their lives. People experiencing hunger, human beings in the middle of a flood, a mass of panicking people stricken with fire in their neighborhood, a child beggar hungrily begging in the streets, person helping another person who is in need, are among the many things that people are aware of most likely, what they worry about at the back of their minds. When artists start to put it into their works, these situational factors that are too depressing are such strong factors that can help people who are also dire situations. This will inspire them to do well, since there are more pitiful people in deplorable state who need their utmost help.
We all tend to be appalled by the tough realities that comes our way but then we do learn a lot from it, such as the horrible hijacking of the Twin towers in America and the recent hostage-taking incident in the Philippines. When scenes like these are used as motivational issues in an art class, students will be inspired to work, and will make them feel special people of God who were spared from such appalling misfortunes in life.
Art workshops are the best venues for inspirational and Christian art to be developed and created and the role of the teacher or instructor is greatest to inspire and motivate the students to express their minds to the best of their abilities.
