A personal art teacher in our home

Review by purposefulhomemaking (Posted on 11/20/14)

As a homeschooling Mom of children ages 9,7, and 5, there are certain subjects that I don't feel adequate to teach. While these may not be life altering subjects, they are ones that I believe will help our children to become well-rounded individuals. And, not knowing yet what God has called each of our children to as a vocation, I want them to be as prepared as possible.

God has been so faithful to help our children learn some important skills that are above and beyond reading, writing and arithmetic and I am thankful for that. He has provided a dear lady from church to teach them how to sew, a wonderful young lady to come to our home for piano lessons, Latin through DVDs and now, Christian based DVDs to teach art.

I feel like our homeschool curriculum is well-rounded and is helping to meet the goals I have as a homeschooling mother.

That being said, I'd like to tell you a little bit about our experience with See the Light art curriculum.

We received two DVDs to review, Art Class Volumes 1 and 2. Each DVD is like having a personal art teacher in our home! Throughout this series, a large variety of techniques are taught by a professional artist and each lesson helps point our children to God, their Creator.

I use these DVDs with our two oldest children, ages 9 and 7, and feel very satisfied that they are getting great art instruction. They are able to do each lesson independently, providing me a break to get other things done. Each lesson is easy enough for them to follow along with that they didn't get frustrated, yet can see improvement in their drawing skills.

The children enjoyed these art lessons and I am happy with them as well. I plan to continue to work our way through the various art instruction DVDs that are available from See the Light.

Don't Drive! Get ART CLASS

Review by save$$ (Posted on 8/18/12)

I know learning to draw is an important part of education, but - finding an art teacher/art class, driving there, and then - - -paying for it - ugh!

I'm so happy with ART CLASS. Teaching is great, love the clarity, the Biblical integration, and - - - now I don't have to drive her to art classes ! I'm saving time and money!!! This is THE best!
Learning and Enjoying

Review by noartist (Posted on 8/18/12)

My daughter loves these art lessons. I love that she loves them. She has already explained to me the purpose of using the smudging (what whatever you call it, I not an artist lol). And she did a little piece using black and white construction paper and excitedly tested me by asking which was the negative and positive parts. I love that she's learning and enjoying what she's learning. Her drawings are everywhere! I finally had to find a folder to store them all.
My kids couldn’t wait to get started.

Review by Lea H @ Virtuous Foundations (Posted on 2/21/12)

My kids couldn’t wait to get started. They love art class! Even my three-year-old gets in place. He grabs his art kit with his Extreme Colored Pencils, and he sits by his sister, ready to follow Pat’s easy-to-understand instructions. Pat Knepley does a wonderful job of explaining each step in detail, in an engaging manner, which is fun and non-intimidating.

My seven-year-old’s art skills have improved so much. She is really learning to pay attention to detail. We are only on Volume 2 and I can’t wait to see the results when we have completed the whole series.

I like how Pat slides God into the art lesson. She has said that God is our Master Creator, and so it should be no surprise He would come up, right? In Lesson 8 (on Volume 2), she talks about details. Then, she goes right in to say that details are important to God, too. She reads from Matthew 20:30 where it reads “even the very hairs of our head are numbered.”
What’s Inside

Art Class – Volume 2 contains Lessons 5-8, and is all about “Shape and Space.”

In Lessons 5 you learn all drawings are made up of lines, and you focus on the types of lines that make up the shapes you are looking for in your drawing. Pat shows how a triangle can turn into a cone, and a circle can have depth just by adding a curved line inside.

Lesson 6 continues on the theme and shows you how to identify shapes in photos. This helps you learn which shapes you need when you draw your own pictures. This was a real eye-opener for my daughter!

I had never heard “positive” and “negative” space taught before. But in Lesson 7, that is just what you learn. What a difference in perspective when you learn about this.

Lesson 8 was lots of fun (okay, they are all fun!). We had to gather leaves – and draw them! It was fun watching both my children focusing on lines and shapes.
Play it Again, Mom!

Yup, my kids like to watch these over and over. I really try to space them out – I do, I do! But they want to dive in from one lesson to the next. I have been only letting them watch two at a time, because since they repeat them, I am sure they are “getting” what they are supposed to be learning – and their drawing (both of them!) has improved noticeably, so I know it’s working! And they are learning a little bit of art history at the same time.

My 3 kids and I are hooked on drawing with Pat K. I should have bought the whole set to begin with.
