You’ll learn how to set up and decorate a classroom that will form your students in the tradition of biblical and liturgical images as well as how to make spectacular bulletin board and table top displays. You’ll also have an invaluable resource to turn to when questions arise. Peter Mazar is the author of the best-selling book To Crown the Year: Decorating the Church Through the Seasons. The wisdom and practicality of that book led teachers and catechist to ask if there was anything similar for them. This is it!
