Here are some coloring pages from Brother Obed’s Coloring Book. We’d love to see the finished pictures, which you can email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Brothers and Sisters at Ephrata Cloister were known for their German calligraphic art of Frakturschriften, often times shortened to the word Fraktur. This is considered the first of this folk art produced in America. In our collection we have a pattern book called The Christian ABC. Below is a template with a copied border that you can use to design your own alphabet letter, or feel free to design your own border as well as the letter. Take a photo and send it to us at Ephrata1732@gmail.com and we’ll put together a virtual exhibit of your artwork.
On exhibit in our gallery is a Spiritual Labyrinth drawn by the Ephrata Brothers or Sisters. A Labyrinth is another word for a maze. While the one on exhibit is a lot more complex than the one below, print this and see if you can find your way to the City on the Hill in the center. Take a photo and show us your completed maze!
