TOS Review: See the Light

My family was privileged this year to not only review a music curriculum but also a wonderful art curriculum. Today I will tell my experience with See The Light Art Class.
                                         See the LightPhotobucket is an art curriculum perfectly designed for homeschoolers as it’s available on DVD or as online classes. The cost for the DVD curriculum is $99 and it includes 9 DVD’s for a total of 36 lessons. The online subscription costs $10 per month and you receive four lessons each month. In addition to the current month’s lessons you will also have access to the previous months lessons. Visit See the Light for more information concerning their online subscription option. The targeted age for this program is 6-10 yrs old but it works fine for older kids and much older adults ;-) especially if there is no previous drawing experience.
See the Light also offers a few art supplies and some additional ‘special occasion’ DVD lessons, such as The Crossmaker which is an art lesson designed for Easter. See the Light is a Christian based art program and the artists frequently use Bible lessons to convey ideas and principals in the art class. I really like this aspect of the program. I always want to be drawing them to the Savior.
We reviewed Volume 1 (lessons 1-4) of the art curriculum. In this volume we learned the basics of art. We learned what we need to have in our art toolbox, how to contour draw, train our eyes and hands to work together, and for the final lesson we put it into practice by drawing a tennis shoe. Josiah enjoyed this program the most and he ended up drawing whatever he could get his hands on. Below is a picture of him drawing a cell phone.

We truly enjoyed this program, Pat Knepley taught each of our lessons and she is very engaging and easy to follow. There are other artists that teach in some of the other DVD’s. You can get a free sample DVD by clicking here.  There are also some video clips on the See the Light website. Hope your family enjoys this program as much as mine has.

Hi Marie.

I am running a bit behind as we had a BAD week last week, but I wanted you to know that you are the second name we drew for the Blogoversary Giveaway. That means you get the CD! I hope this is OK with you. I know some folks also reviewed the cd, and so they did not want it. If that is the case with you, I will notify you if the winner does not contact me in a week, and then you can have the book.

In any case, if you email me at blessingfarm at cox dot net, then I can have the cd sent to you asap (I will need your address). Let me know if you'd prefer to wait and see, if you already have the cd. If you are happy with the cd, I can get the info out right away and get it on its way on Monday! Congratulations and thanks for entering!

I like your review. I went and requested the preview dvd. A freebie for me, too. Yay!

Have a blessed Easter.
