My 6 y/o had great success with the Creative Lettering lesson

Review by lioncubschool (Posted on 8/30/14)

Several weeks ago I came across the SEE THE LIGHT site. From the previews, I thought it looked like something my 6 y/o daughter and I would like. I'm pleased to say we do love this curriculum very much!
The BIBLE STORY DVD's teach art by taking kids through Bible stories and having them illustrate scenes or concepts from the story. We have "God's Runaway", which is about Jonah. There's an illustrated Bible story (my 6 y/o loved it and watched it 3 times before we even got to the art lessons, and I was impressed with it's quality).
My daughter loves to draw but has never had any instruction is drawing before. The lessons are so easy and step by step that it's impossible not to be able to follow them.
My daughter loved doing the Creative Lettering lesson. Instead of using the blacklight and neon colored pencils, she chose her own colors of colored pencils, and completed the art project that way. She loved the result, and it now hangs on the fridge where she shows it off to anyone who comes over!

Review by Generational Womanhood (Posted on 7/23/13)

I am not artsy. When I am asked to describe a color I can’t, because my brain doesn’t work that way.

But, as the mother of eight children, I’ve noticed something. Every. single. child. thinks. that. he. is. a. great. artist! And, it makes me sad when my children reach the age where reality sets in because no one ever taught him or her the basics!

God's Runaway has 268 minutes of lessons included. Several different instructors showed different approaches to drawing the story of Jonah.

See the Light helps non-artsy parents overcome that problem. I love the fact that the lessons are based on Bible stories but, more than that, I love the fact that I want to do those lessons even though they are geared toward children.

How’s this for a really creative by-line? See the Light; Drawing Children to Him.

The first instructor showed a simple way to draw several big fish. Choosing the word “obey” as the theme of Jonah (because he struggled to obey God), the instructor incorporated the word “obey” in the mist that blew up from the whales blowhole, in the waves and in the whales teeth. Talk about simple but creative!

I also enjoyed the technique of using chalk pastels combined with a black light. The lessons look very creative and interesting on their own but turn on a black light and the whole picture is amazingly illuminated and beautiful! A black light costs only ten dollars!

The only drawback to the DVD that I found was that the first lesson was definitely geared toward younger children (ages 6-8) while the second lesson was for a much older or patient child. The instructors had different approaches in their teaching style as well. This needs to be clarified for the student.

I showed the DVD to my 11 and 7 year olds. The 11 year old has taken an art class for a semester and approached the DVD with a know-it-all air. She sat down next to me because I required her to but I noticed that she was quickly drawn in by the instructor. The idea of using a black light fascinated her and, at the end of the lesson, (when she saw the effect of the black light on the chalk drawing) she got very excited and asked if we could get a black light so she could try it!

Kudos to you See the Light!

The 7 year old just stared at the DVD with total fascination and then, immediately began looking for the chalk pastels in our cupboard.
Combine Art & Bible for a meaningful lesson

Review by The Paper Maid (Posted on 7/15/13)

This DVD has a full 268 minutes of content. Easy to use. Just pop it in and you're ready to go. You could be doing your first art lesson within a few minutes - - - if you don't get captivated by the story of Jonah first, that is.
The story of Jonah is delightfully retold while artist Gloria Kohlmann draws a black light interpretation of the story. There's something very appealing to watching an artist bring a picture to life right before your very eyes. Definitely geared to keep your child's interest.
Hugely Inspirational Product

Review by Reaping a Harvest (Posted on 7/15/13)

One thing I'm not good at is implementing an art program for my boys. I was surely blessed by God's Runaway. My boys loved this and have already asked for more SEE THE LIGHT art lessons.
I really appreciated that different artists were included on the DVD - it added variety and diversity to the project. I really like it when competent male and female teachers can mentor my boys.
Theoretically, you could use this project weekly over the course of a month and have 3 art lessons + art appreciation with the bonus features.
I loved knowing that the boys were in good hands. Another great benefit of this program? I seen LOTS more art pop up around the house :)
A Great Asset and A Blessing

Review by Women Abiding (Posted on 7/13/13)

See The Light focuses on presenting Biblical accounts while teaching invaluable character qualities through those accounts with the incredible added bonus of teaching your children art!
The message is beautifully illustrated, Biblically sound, and the character qualities drawn out of the story are inspiring and essential to learn! (Spanish Language Tracks Included, if that's your preference)
I love the way you can pretty much use materials you already have at home.
The tone of the entire DVD is conversational and friendly.
By the end of the DVD, your child will know the account of Jonah inside and out, as well as many beloved lessons, morals, and values to be learned from this humble prophet.
Ages for Story & Art lessons

Review by blessed family (Posted on 8/6/12)

The DVD states that the story is best suited for 3 and up, and the art lessons are best suited for 6 and up. I find this to be true as my 8 year old was able to follow along and complete Jim Pence's whale drawing. My 10 year old was able to complete the creative lettering with Heidi Shorts, and my 14 year old was captivated by Pat Knepley's pastels lesson. All of my children were equally engaged by the storytelling excellence of Jonah portrayed by sight and sound.
Engaging Viewers

Review by blessed family (Posted on 8/5/12)

I truly admire how SEE THE LIGHT is using their gifts, talents, and experiences to tell God's Word through art. They not only tell the story, but also engage the audience with God's Word through Biblical integration. I love how they shoed that God provided a great fish for Jonah, not as a punishment, but as a way of saving him (the way Jesus, our Lord and Svior, was sent to die for us - --for our salvation)
Art and Bible at their best

Review by Oh my from Ohio (Posted on 1/22/12)

These Bible story DVDs are able to capture the attention and imaginations of all my children. These are art and Bible lessons at their best.
The Hand of God

Review by blest (Posted on 11/5/11)

I have 6 kids - ages 3 to 13. They all know the story of Jonah, but I ordered this because of the art lessons and hoped the story wouldn't be boring for the older ones.
It wasn't. The radio theatre drama, the black light at the end showing the hand of God pointing to Ninevah was dynamic.

We've only done the chalk art lesson so far - a little too hard for the little ones, but good for ages 6 or 7 and above.
To give the POP at the end of the lessons, Ineed to get the black light and special pencils and chalk.

Review by momuv6 (Posted on 11/5/11)

I won the DVD in a FB contest, but didn't realize all I was getting.
The familiar story is beautifully done . The presentation is artistic, dramatic, Biblical. The ending black light is amazing. All my children - ages 3 - 13 were attentive (and that's saying a lot).
Since I help with an evangelism outreach at my church , we showed the bonus feature, The Plan of Salvation, after presenting the gospel. All I can say is the Lord used it in a mighty way. I've never seen anything like it.

Next for us will be the art lessons. Can't wait to try them.
