See The Light

My girls love to draw, Morgan started keeping an Art Journal years ago and it is beautiful. I wanted all three of my younger girls to do the same. So we try to make time in our school week for them to draw and journal in their notebooks. This year we haven't been very diligent in this until we watched Art Class from See The Light and now my girls are wanting to draw all the time.

We received The Basics DVD which contains lessons 1-4 of the first volume. Pat Knepley does a wonderful job explaining things to the kids. All three of my girls ages 6, 8, &10 watched the DVD several times. It inspired Amber (10) to draw random objects around the house. Each lesson gives step by step instructions that include Art History and Biblical Truth while building upon skills learned in the previous lessons. It is very obvious that Pat loves Art and that she enjoys teaching it.
  • Lesson 1 Tools Of The Trade ~ Pat explains what makes a drawing and shows you items that are great to include in your "drawing toolkit".
  • Lesson 2 It All Starts With A Line ~ The student learns about line qualities and that contour drawing is the most important skill of drawing.
  • Lesson 3 Contours & Composition ~ You will receive tips on where to place objects in your drawing and to train you eyes and hands to work together.
  • Lesson 4 Draw What You See ~ You are taught to draw what you see & not what you know by placing a shoe and drawing exactly what you see from the angle it is placed in front of you.
  • Bonus Chalk-It-Easy Chalk Art Lesson ~ Gloria Kohlman explains what she is doing while completing a chalk drawing.
There are 9 DVD's in the Art Class series with 36 lessons for a full year curriculum taught to elementary age children. If you have an older child who has not had any art training they would benefit from this also. Most lessons require only paper, pencil, and eraser. You can purchase the complete set for $99.99. Art Class is also available with an online subscription with a rate of $10.00 per month. The online classes are the same as the DVD version. You will get 4 lessons per month and as long as you are still a subscriber you may go back and view your previous lessons. You can also explore the Bible through some of their other DVD lessons, purchase gift sets, supplies, books, and music from the See The Light store.

If you would like to try it out the first 3 lessons are available online for free or you may request a free DVD.

Pat Knepley loves sharing her passion for Art with kids, she has been drawing and painting since she was very little and she has an Art Education degree and teaching credentials from Penn State.

As a member of the TOS Crew I received The Basic DVD from See The Light to use with my children free of charge in exchange for my review of this item.
