Guest Speaker Kevin Luthardt
This Sunday, the Artist Circle will be hosting a gathering which will feature a short talk by Chicago artist Kevin Luthardt.
Kevin is a children’s book author and illustrator originally from Schaumburg, Illinois. Although Kevin didn’t actually plan to become an author when he graduated from the U-of-I, the process of exploring various mediums while earning his bachelor’s in painting helped create a style that easily translates to children’s books.
In addition to illustrating books, Kevin also paints pieces of artwork and even full-sized murals. He has brought neighborhood youth together through his mural projects, and his work has been shown at the Mars Gallery for over fourteen years. In everything he does, Kevin says he seeks to glorify God by using themes that mirror his faith.
When he is not working, Kevin spends time with his wife Alicia and their three children. He and his wife are very involved at Armitage Church in Chicago.
Kevin’s advice to aspiring artists is to practice, work hard, and study various artists’ work. Kevin’s website can be seen HERE.
The Artist Circle gathering will be taking place this Sunday, the 16th, at 6:30p in room 309 at the Moody Church. We look forward to seeing you there!
