Great Idea for Visual Aids

Of course, we are all aware of the Gospel Art Packet, and the downloadable Gospel Art available from, but a really great idea to build up a large collection of beautiful gospel prints for use in teaching is to buy calendars by LDS artists such as Liz Lemon Swindle, Simon Dewey, Greg Olson, Mark Mabry, Elspeth Young, or others, and simply cut the pages apart.

I also just bought a great 2012 "Lands of the Bible" calendar with photographs of present-day sites from the Bible by Todd Bolen, from the BYU Bookstore.

For about $12 (U.S.) full price, you can get a 12 x 12 inch calendar with 12 gorgeous prints.  If you buy them on clearance after the New Year, of course, you can get them even cheaper.  Ask friends and family to give you theirs instead of throwing them away at the end of the year, and you can get them for free.  Or tell people you would love calendars with gospel-themed art for Christmas.

If you don't have easy access to a store that sells LDS products, you can shop at Deseret Book, Seagull Book, or Amazon online, or at LDS Art online.

Simon Dewey's 2011 Calendar is for sale for $1.60 at Deseret right now.  (Shipping was $2.99 for my Utah address.)  A few of Todd Bolen's 2011 Calendars are on sale for 1 penny plus $4.99 shipping from Amazon Marketplace.
