I received Disc 1 of the See the Light Art Class by Pat Holt to review. In order to review it, I sat down with my son, who is very interested in art, and watched the videos. Disc 1 (or Volume 1) is the basics of art. This volume teaches the art supplies needed, the correct way to hold your pencil for different shading and line thicknesses. The teacher discusses shading, perception and many other of the basics. My son has taken Art in the public schools for several years, and most of the information given on this volume he already knew, but there was a thing or two that was brand new to him. Not only did Pat teach about drawing, but she related the lesson to a Bible lesson.
I really enjoyed this volume. It was definitely a BASIC lesson, so it's perfect for the child that has never had any art instruction or for the child that needs a review of the Basics. I would love to see the other volumes and see what they might include. There was also a bonus lesson that had to do with a chalk drawing. It was amazing to watch the woman go from a blank sheet of paper to a lovely chalk drawing of the Jerusalem!! This series would definitely make a great addition to your homeschool curriculum or as an extracurricular program for any child.
