Glendale Matias from Oasis Church in Los Angeles, California brings us these Easter elements from all over their church.
The visual arts team was tasked on developing a few key spaces within the church – particularly areas with high traffic to be visually interesting. They wanted people walking through the church to feel spring and the newness of Easter. Some of those concepts translated to color (variation of green), material (linear/modern wood installations) and stage lighting (paper lanterns).
On stage, they built a slatted wood wall (they found a few concepts floating around churchstagedesignideas.com) and built a platform using plain pine wood which they stained cherry. The structure was 8′ x 20′. They took this concept and applied it to their inner lobby around a very prominent load-bearing pole.
They also used colored chalk and created a grid on the cafe wall with tape and filled in the squares with colored chalk. They made these mobile frames (Think a door jamb without the door and with feet so they could freely stand). They painted strips of wood (recycled from an older project) and cut them into linear strips and attached those strips to the frames.
