Sunday Church School Classroom Murals

"Bibleland"

The History of the Trinity
Lutheran Church Murals
Compiled by Mary Kay Fager

In the year 200, the Education Committee, headed by Fred Kerr and Marie Bake, discussed the fact that fewer children were attending Sunday Church School at Trinity since the remodeling of the church.  The Sunday School classrooms were stark, painted a dreary white. 

Room 121 - "The Art Room"

 

Work started in Room 121 - the Art Room.  Colorful banners were hung from the ceiling suggesting a rainbow.  Flowers and leaves were woven into a lattice divider.

Room 122 - "Bibleland"









When the Art Room was completed, the next room to be undertaken was room 122, and the concept of "Bibleland" was born.  Mary Kay Fager was asked to design the murals for the walls. 

Tent tarps were made and hung from the ceiling.  Palm trees were made from left over palm branches from Palm Sunday.  Much research was done using resources from the church library and the Fredrickson Library.




 

It was suggested that there could be a mule and a donkey cart...

 

 

 

 

 

 


... and tradesmen ...

 

 

 

 

 

 


... and a three dimensional
well ...

 

 

 

 

 

 

... and steps leading up to temple doors that could open with the wall behind being used for a screen for videos and movies.

Some 78 colors in all were used by the artists in creating "Bibleland".

Rooms 124-126 - "After Monet"



 

Rooms 124-126 were the final project and took on a garden theme.  Stylized after Monet's garden paintings, it was named "After Monet".  A trellis, urn, garden benches and other props completed the garden theme.

In addition to Mary Kay Fager, the designer and principle artist for the project, many people were involved in making it all happen, including:

Fred Kerr, Marie Bake, Jayne Coover, Kathy Powers, Mary Lou Gilbert, Cindy Schmidt, Mary Ellen Hettinger, Alden Amig, Dick Gulden, Joe Lint, Peter Pennington, John Gottshall, John Constantine, Elizabeth Constantine, Kathy Kelly, Pat Bixler, Kay Wolfe, Devon Ackerman, Krista Fawber, Stephanie Maurer, Seth Maurer and Terry Powell.
