Scott Erickson is an artist at heart– he is a father, husband, touring painter, performance speaker, and creative priest.
In this four-part series of videos, he shares Why The Church Needs Art. Each video focuses on a different aspect of art in Church, sharing as he goes, some of his own very personal experiences he has had on his journey in making, creating, painting, drawing, and even designing tattoos for the Church.
I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I did. I believe that art needs to be brought back to the Church again. Our art as followers of Jesus can reflect the art of God both in the Bible and in each of our own personal stories, in a very real, deep, raw, and beautiful way. His videos are everything you need to hear, so I won’t say anything more.
