5.0 out of 5 stars Video Art Curriculum September 26, 2011
See the Light Shine is a Christian ministry that has developed a video art curriculum. There are 9 DVDs in the set. Pat Knepley is the artist teaching the lessons in the series. Each DVD has 4 lessons in it with one bonus lesson. They are short, only about 15 minutes in length. Each lesson also talks about God and His Word. The art concepts are all related to biblical concepts and our faith. It was neat to me to see how the art teacher wove in lessons about God. Art does reflect the beauty of God and His creation. Art is also a very special act because it is a way that we reflect our creator.

There is a sample of the first three lessons on their site. My children have done the first four lessons (as have I). I have wanted to draw for a while now. I even bought a set of watercolor paints. But, I struggled to know what to do with them. I needed someone to show me. I was reminded of my difficulty as I watched these videos. There are many wonderful art curriculums that consist of a written text. Because videos are a different medium, they have different strengths and weaknesses, which I want to elaborate on.

One of the greatest strength of videos is that you can actually "see" someone create a work of art. You can see how they move their hands and all the little steps involved (if they show them). If you don't have access to an art teacher, or you yourself aren't experienced in teaching art, there are likely many tricks and techniques you won't be able to demonstrate. I appreciated "seeing" Pat's demonstration of how to hold the pencil so that you can shade. She was very specific and clear in her directions. I also liked her explanation of how to draw a lighter or darker line by holding the pencil differently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Homeschoolers! March 22, 2011
We received the first DVD to review in the See the Light Art Curriculum Art Class: Volume One which includes lessons one through four. Each lesson is about ten minutes long, and this first DVD covers the basics, the basic tools needed, contours and composition, etc. Master artist Pat Knepley is a fantastic teacher, and my 10 yr old really understood the basics after watching this DVD. She is still practicing, but her knowledge of art techniques in general has improved. With her love of art and drawing, I'm sure we will soon have a large collection of DVDs from See the Light!

This curriculum is faith-based and creates an encouraging and inspirational atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Biblical Art Curriculum June 6, 2013
See The Light art curriculum has been a blessing in our home. Teaching my children biblical principles through their artwork has brought Art education to a new level. This program is easy to use and thorough. My daughter can use it on her own with little instruction from me and is able to create wonderful projects all on her own. See The Light is going to be used around here for a long time. Thanks Holts' for creating such an amazing program!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review on Art Projects - Tiffany Window May 1, 2013
Title: See the Light Drawing Children to Him - Art Projects - Tiffany Window
Artist: Pat Knepley
Publisher: Legacy 4 God Publishing, Inc.

Do you have an artistic, creative child who wants to learn how to draw with more detail, depth and confidence? In Pat Knepley's See the Light - Drawing Children to Him Series, "Art Projects - Tiffany Window," the first of nine DVDs shows four step by step videos of producing artwork that resembles a colorful stained glass window on poster board.

Geared toward ten years old or older children, this Christian-based advanced series has nine different videos that cover nine famous artist and their creative styles. The Tiffany Window is in lieu of Louis Comfort Tiffany, the well-known stained glass artist. It consists of four separate videos that range from twenty-one to twenty-nine minutes each that takes a young artist from start to finish of one art project.

The first video is "Planning Your Composition" which begins with materials needed, a brief history of the artist with some photographs of his work and how to observe the subject matter as stems, leaves and flowers are sketched out on the board.

On the second video, "Rule of Thirds" reviews materials used again and discusses negative space by dividing the design into nine equal sections while retracing and completing the sketch. Stained glass and Art Nuevo is mentioned with more of Tiffany's original works shown.

"Color Theory," the third video, is all about colors and the color wheel, explaining complementary and contrasting colors. By using markers, techniques are shown coloring the flower, stem and background shapes by filling in, blending, and overlapping.
