My honest opinion. 100% true and 100% my own!

I really wasn't sure what to expect from the DVD except that it was The Easter Story and art lessons. But, in the homeschooling world, if something is good, word gets around. I'd heard several people talking about how good these art lessons by See The Light are.Since it is very close to Easter, we decided to would go with The Crossmaker. I'm very glad we did!
I rounded the boys (and the dogs) up and we all settled in to watch.

My boys never moved a muscle, never even flinched. OK, well maybe they flinched, but they didn't move from the couch the entire time The Crossmaker was playing. It was gripping, stunning, breathtaking. There just aren't words to describe it. I literally had tears running down my checks. It was perfect. But nothing that wasn't OK for even my 8 year old to view.

After The Crossmaker was finished, we immediately jumped to He is Not Here! He is Risen! This are lesson finishes up the Easter story with the resurrection. See the Light Master Art Teacher, Pat Knepley, gives a step-by-step drawing lesson using chalk pastels.

Dalton decided he wanted to give this lesson a try. Yet, he is not a fan of getting chalk on his hands. So he decided he would do the drawing with pencils and crayons. I think he did a fantastic job.

After Dalton finished up, Bailey decided he would give Jim Pence's mixed media, Three Crosses on a Hill, a shot. Probably because it was quick and easy. Pre-teens!

We didn't have water-colors on hand, so he decided he would use his oil pastels. I think he also did a fantastic job!

I honestly can't give this DVD enough praise or a positive enough review. I will certainly be purchasing the other Bible stories as we get the money. Bailey, Dalton, and I absolutely loved this!

Priceless Learning

Review by bluemanoreducation (Posted on 8/31/13)

My children love when I read their favorite Bible stories. They also love art. We were able to put the two together with "Crossmaker". I was amazed at the beautiful creations my young children were able to create. And the lessons and the story they learned was priceless.
"Crossmaker" portrays the monumental occasion of the cross in an artistic and engaging way. My kids were captivated by the beautiful drawings and passionate audio recording of the story.
My children's favorite project from this video was the Watercolor Crosses.

My daughter is my little artist, she loves drawing, coloring, painting. We watched the DVD together, then did two of the art lessons, and we both enjoyed doing them so much. I'm not as artistic as she is, but I loved doing this with her!
So Much Content

Review by 7-4-heaven (Posted on 2/10/13)

My children have loved ART CLASS w/ Pat Knepley, so I thought I'd try a Bible story. I'm so glad I did . I not only found something special for Easter for my family, but for our church as well. The story is captivating, written from the perspective of a boy. The artwork is stunning. The drama/music paves the way for the spiritual awakening of the boy in the story. There is no doubt that lives will be transformed with the viewing of this story.
The bonus feature "Plan of Salvation" must not be missed. It is outstanding. In a few short minutes, the Biblical plan is given in a way that totally relates to children.
The art lessons are superb. New techniques are taught while the Biblical message is being reinforced.
Moving and Powerful

Review by fullhouse (Posted on 2/10/13)

Too often Easter DVDs for children do not convey the sacrificial love of our Lord. Crossmaker does! The story is presented in a way that my children could relate to Dominic, the boy in the story, who came to realize that Jesus died for him, for his sin, and then - rose again - what joy!
The related art lessons are excellent. Jim Pence quotes a short poem at the end of his mixed media lesson that really struck me and my family. We won't forget it: "He died upon a cross of wood and made the hill on which it stood." Powerful!
Perfect for Easter

Review by lightsrwe (Posted on 2/10/13)

My children know the Easter story, but I want them to really understand and comprehend the Biblical depth and meaning in ways appropriate for them.
CROSSMAKER does it! The children could relate to the boy in the story, and experience the passion of Christ in a way that seemed personal to each of them - ages 6 to 13.
The related art lessons were an amazing bonus. I heartily recommend this DVD.
Go with the Glow!

Review by A good "stumble" (Posted on 1/22/12)

I stumbled across this company through a giveaway on another blog. I did some research and decided to purchase some of their materials.
While I am good at arts and crafts, I am in no way qualified to teach art concepts. I put the DVD in thinking that I could get some work done while the kids learned art from a professional.
I put in the DVD and was immediately drawn to how fun and interesting it was. It also had a unique feature I had never seen before.
while there are a bunch of different techniques they teach (painting, drawing, pastels, creative lettering) the one that stood out the most to me was drawing with fluorescent pencils that GLOW when held up to a black light! AWESOME!
