The Gift of Love
From See The Light
From the DVD: The Christmas Story, artfully brought to life through the captivating expressions of chalk-art, music and drama (10 minutes). Art Lessons! Heidi Shorts teaches on the art of creative lettering. Pat Knepley leads budding young artists in a step-by-step drawing lesson using colored pencils. Plus, create your own black light reveal! Gloria Kohlman gives a tutorial on on chalk-art techniques (a sketch to download is available at See the Light). Plus bonus features!
-Taken from the back of the DVD
From me: I liked the simple way the birth of Jesus was told while watching a chalk drawing be created. The boys enjoyed it as well and had me repeat it quite a few times. It IS short though. No more than 5-10 minutes. So if you're buying this DVD just for the story, I don't think it's worth it. However, the main appeal of this DVD is the fact that there are three art lessons included; creative lettering, drawing animals on a Christmas card and how to create a portrait of Mary with chalk. These lessons are geared toward elementary children and, while I'm not an artist by any means, I thought they were pretty great!
If you visit the See the Light website, there is an online art club as well as print outs that go along with the many DVD's offered. I can see this being a great resource for homeschooling families!
Not only did I receive a DVD of The Gift of Love to review, I received one to give away as well! All you need to do to be entered is to check out See The Light's website and tell me what you think!
