Yeah! We got to do another review of a See the Light art DVD. This one is part of the Bible Story series and is called “Shipwrecked.” It has 3 art projects based on the shipwreck that the apostle Paul had and sells for just $14.99!
The DVD is divided in several divided into several different sections. You can hear the story of Paul and his shipwreck through a 15-minute chalk art presentation by Gloria Kohlmann. She is really good. The kids were mesmerized watching it.
Next, there are 3 separate art lessons, presented by 3 different and amazing teachers.
Pat Knepely does a 24-minute chalk pastel drawing lesson of the ship being tossed by the waves. Using fluorescent chalk the kids put a cross in the sky to show how Paul was trusting in the Lord to save everyone on the ship. You can only see it with a black light, though! My children love this part of the lessons–putting something “secret” in the picture which will show up when they get in a dark room (closet) and turn on the black light. We got our black light from the See the Light website, and it’s only $10. One great thing about making this purchase is that it is used in all 5 of the Bible Story series DVDs. Here are a few pictures of our first lesson. (The black light photos didn’t show up well.)
The second lesson was presented by Heidi Shorts and teaches the kids how to do Creative Lettering in a 19-minute lesson. This one focused on the word “Courage” and how the Lord gave Paul courage during the shipwreck. I loved how she taught them to make the letters look like wood (as in pieces of the ship). Didn’t my daughter do a good job with this?
Last the kids did a 27-minute water color/ mixed media picture of a lighthouse taught by Jim Pence. I joined in on this one! We used black permanent markers for the lighthouse, water colors (and he taught us a few specialized techniques) for the sky and water, and fluorescent crayon for the light. Again, we used the black light to see some really neat effects! The photos turned out great on these.
Now it’s time for a giveaway! See the Light has graciously offered one copy of the “Shipwrecked” art DVD. You’ll love doing these projects with your own kids!
