See the Lightshine brings artists with different specialties together to bring a variety of techniques, art history, chalk artistry, performance arts, gospel chalk art (with black light), crafts, and creative lettering. Musicians include songs they have personally written, performed, arranged, and produced. "The SEE THE LIGHT team is dedicated to bringing scripture and biblical principles to viewers in a fresh, engaging way. . . and promising to teach some exciting art skills along the way!" See The Light offers 5 Bible Stories that incorporate hands on art lessons. The one that I was selected to review was Shipwrecked. In this story, Giovanni accompanies his dad on a journey full of hope and fear. The boat is destroyed but one prisoner that knows God changes everything. While the child is experiencing the story, she is seeing the Biblical tale of the Apostle Paul through the eyes of Giovanni. After the story ends, chalk artist Gloria Kohlmann draws her interpretation of the story utilizing black light. Artist Heidi Shorts teaches the art of Creative Lettering by helping the child create letters that look as though they were built with weathered wood and nails. "Master Artist Pat Knepley leads budding young artists in a step-by-step drawing lesson using chalk pastels. Turn on the black light to see that it is the cross of Jesus that saves!" Jim Pence gives a mixed media tutorial as children learn how to create a lighthouse. While watching Gloria Kohlmann draw, you would hear the original contemporary music performed by “Breathing Room” recording artists Jan Roper and Kevin Dukes.The story is for ages 3 and up and the art lessons are for children 6 and older. The cost for Shipwrecked is $14.99.
My daughter and I loved watching the story of the Apostle Paul while learning how to use different art media. We used pastels, extreme colored pencils, and water colors to name a few. My daughter learned how to draw a lighthouse, make letters look as though they were made of wood and nails, and draw a ship with the silhouette of Paul pointing to a cross in the sky. When she completed the drawing of the Apostle Paul in a ship pointing to the cross in the sky, she was able to use a black light and see the cross glow. That was pretty amazing. She also learned how to utilize masking tape to keep the water colors from running. We had so much fun learning about the Bible and using art to depict certain scenes. Shipwrecked was an awesome DVD and we would recommend it.
I have been given this product free of charge for review purposes.
