Our latest project: Come, Follow Me (Art Companion)

We’re thrilled to announce the Center’s latest project. To assist people of all ages in their study of the scriptures, the Center for Latter-day Saint Arts has prepared a weekly tool to go with each lesson from the Come, Follow Me manual using fine art and objects created by members of the Church, commentary, and questions to spark discussion. We call it Come, Follow Me (Art Companion).

Advisory Board member Jennifer Wilcox came up with the idea. She is a Sunday School teacher par excellence, and the idea to bring fine art images and objects into a conversation about the scriptures was too good to pass up. Often, we come to images in religious education from a vantage point of illustration. To discuss a parable about the loaves and the fishes, a common default is a realistic painting of Christ feeding the 5,000? But there is much more out there to discuss.

Join us weekly as we explore images and objects, ask questions about them, and provide ideas to complement your study of the sacred works.
