Welcome to the Inspirational Online Art Studio PaperPaint&Palette

Going into deeper relationships with Christ while perfecting fine art skills

Thank you for visiting my virtual art studio for Christian art teachers and homeschooling parents.

Let me introduce myself and show you around.

My name is Masha Hemmerling,

and I am an artist

art teacher

and a published author.

In this inspirational art studio I will be sharing with you

my art and faith-related materials

in a form of books, lessons, videos and articles.

I am inviting you to go through

the spiritual and professional growth

along with me

as an art teacher or a homeschooling parent.

I'll be happy to be a part of your journey

as we are going into deeper relationships with Christ

while perfecting our artistic and teaching skills!





But before you will start exploring my websites

I would like to share with you

three fundamental parts

that should be installed into

every Christian art teacher:


Art teachers are chosen and equipped by God.

He handpicked you and prebuilt you.

He gave you all needed tools

that should be used by you, the artistic vessel.

"And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills..."

Exodus 35:31 (NIV)


Art teachers need to serve others with their talents.

God wants you to use your talents

and not to bury it into the ground.

You are an important part of the church, the body of Christ.

And you was designed for the special purpose.

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms."

1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)


Art teachers will point to Jesus

by doing what God designed them to do.

They will be bringing others to Christ through

their good teaching and artistic deeds.

"Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Matthew 5:16 (NIV)
