Sunday Summer School Art–2021–“Making A Psalm 23 Poster”–Week Ten


For Parents To Teach To Their Children

Psalm 23 is a beloved and familiar psalm for many people. This week we make a poster for the home that children can make using a copy of the psalm from the Internet, or write out by hand. This is the 10th week mark for fun Sunday School art projects. I am taking a two week break  for a little R & R. We’ll continue in mid-July until the end of September. Then, it’s back to traditional Religious Education and preparation for First Reconciliation. Happy Summer!

Psalm 23

“A psalm of David.”


“The LORD is my shepherd;

there is nothing I lack.

In green pastures he makes me lie down;

to still waters he leads me;

he restores my soul.

He guides me along right paths

for the sake of his name.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for you are with me;

your rod and your staff comfort me.


You set a table before me

in front of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

6Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me

all the days of my life;

I will dwell in the house of the LORD

for endless days.”

Our Art Project–Psalm 23 Poster

I traced a rectangle onto a large sheet of watercolor paper, leaving the border to decorate. I wanted to make the image of an oasis in the desert. I painted designs around the rectangle border, in black ink with a tiny brush to be filled in with liquid watercolors. Then I added stripes of green shades inside the rectangle. Next step was super easy! Print out a copy of Psalm 23 from the under the Books of the Bible “Psalms.” I used squiggly scissors around the edge of the printed paper, then lightly glued down onto the green strips, using Mod Podge. You can adapt the art supplies in any way you’d like–Sharpie pens instead of black ink; school glue instead of Mod Podge: regular scissors instead of squiggly scissors. However your children do this project the goal is to have fun and learn about Psalm 23. Enjoy!
