Paul loves art. He loves to draw and paint and always has. Last spring he took a couple of art classes at our local Cultural Arts Center, he loved them and did so well. Unfortunately the cost of art classes was just not in the budget for this school year. Paul was disappointed but I picked up some art supplies and he has continued to "play" with them on his own and done quite well. So, imagine how excited we were to review See the Light Art Class
We were asked to review Volume One of the Art Class DVD's. Volume 1 covers the first 4 lessons. There are 9 volumes total with 4 lessons on each DVD. In Volume 1 each lesson is about 10 minutes long and covers the basics of art, what tools are needed, contour and composition etc. There is also a brief Bible "lesson" in each lesson. There is no set age for this curriculum but I would think about age 6 would be the youngest I would use this. It would work for younger children with strong fine motor skills. It could be used for kids up to the middle school age if they have not had any or very little art experience in the past.
There are various options for purchasing this program and you can see the options here. There are also many other art lessons you can purchase.
If you would like to view the first three lessons of "Art Class" for free head on over here.
Since Paul has had art in the past this was a bit simple for him. Each lesson is very brief and doesn't cover quite enough for his taste. With that said, I think it will be great for Zachary when his fine motor skills are a little stronger. He has not had any art classes and doesn't have the love of art that Paul has so I think this will be a great introductory course for him possibly next year.
