I have been looking for an art curriculum to use in our homeschool this year. I did find one that I thought would work. I ordered it, but me, not being an artist myself, has found it difficult to teach my children art out of a book. I was given the chance to do a review for See the Light. I love this art curriculum since it is a DVD and I do not have to know art myself.
I also love that this program is for younger children as well and starts with the basics. My children are 10, 9, and 7. My 7 year old was having trouble being able to draw and do the other art curriculum I had purchased. She was getting discouraged with the other curriculum because she couldn't do the drawings her brothers could do. When I put this DVD in for them to watch, she loved it. It starts with the basics in a way younger children can understand. She was able to do the lessons very easily.
Here is an overview of See the Light:
See the Light art is taught by Master Artist, Pat Knepley. The supplies needed for this program are very simple: a #2 pencil, a white eraser or gray kneaded eraser, blank paper, and a pencil sharpener. There are other supplies needed, but most of the supplies are things you already have around the house such as apples, a sharpie marker, glue sticks, and leaves. You can check out the detailed list here.
What I like about these DVD's:
~ The lessons are not long. They are simple and short that will keep your child's attention the entire time.
~ The lessons focus on one topic at a time.
~ Pat has a love for God and the Bible. She has a Biblical focus at each lesson.
~ Each lesson builds on what was learned during the previous lesson.
~ You learn about different famous artists in the lessons.
Check out the first lesson:
You can purchase a complete one year set of DVD's for $99.99. Single DVD's are $14.99 each.
One more thing- each DVD has a special bonus lesson included. The bonus lesson for the DVD I reviewed was an easy chalk art lesson. My 10 year old loves art and was so excited to learn how to do chalk art.
