See the Light: The Crossmaker Review and Giveaway

When celebrating Easter at our house we try to focus on the real meaning of the holiday, Christ and all He has done for us. Granted we still dye and hunt eggs and have alot of fun in that area, but our focus is in Christ’s death and resurrection during this time of year. I feel this DVD perfect for the season to help you remember the true meaning of Eater.

My  daughter has always adored art and I try to fill our homeschool days with lots of crafts and creativity to fuel this desire. She loves attending art festivals and watching painters on TV, but she has always wanted to take real art classes and learn the "how-to's" of creating her own masterpiece. Sadly, the classes have always been way too expensive for this single parent to afford, until now that is. This program is affordable and well worth the money it does cost.

The combination of story-telling and interactive art makes this DVD appropriate for all age groups and the art lessons incorporate some awesome special effects using a black lights that any kid, and some adults, would be tickled pink to create.

My Thoughts: I really enjoyed the way that the DVD combined a story that my younger children could listen to and enjoy while my older ones worked on creating their own masterpieces.I loved that my kids were recreating a piece of Gods word and the storytelling drew you in.

Thoughts of my 13 year old: My daughter loved the water colors and the instructions on creating the art work by using chalk pastels, fluorescent chalk pastels, colored pencils,  and crayons.

Thoughts of my 6 year old: Drake adored the story and watched it over and again these last few weeks. He like the crayons and chalk pastels the best.He attempted to do the art lesson itself, but had difficulty.

Thoughts of my 18 year old: I would say that the movie part of the DVD is suited for elementary  kids and maybe first year middle school, and the art lessons will work for just about anybody with basic art skills. I enjoyed recreating the 3 crosses.

I love that See the Light is Biblically-Based and the fact that they use a black light during art class. This is a unique and new approach for me.

I just found the company and am very interested in using this art for my next homeschool year. We struggled a little with art, not because I'm not creative, but I'm not sure where to begin. I think that this would be a great foundational series and I'm definitely considering it in its entirety.
