See the Light is the brain child of Dave and Pat Holt. Through art and music, they share the truth of th gospel with children. In addition to this Cartooning DVD, they have other project based art DVDs available. Pat Knepley is the Master Artist on the Cartooning DVD. She'll guide you and your children through classical cartooning, along with the art elements line, space and shape and the concept of exaggeration and movement.
We spent a Monday afternoon doing art. All five boys worked through the lesson, and their ages are 13, 12, 10, 9, and 7. At the end, everyone had a few pages of characters they had drawn. After we watched and cartooned along with the DVD, I gave each of my boys an index card and told them to write down three opinions of the program. The didn't talk to each other before they wrote down their opinions, but they all had similar thoughts.
- Learned some new techniques
- Learned new ideas for characters
- It was long
- Concepts were over-explained
Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. If you're looking for a something fun to add to your homeschool, I'd check out the DVDs from See the light.
