ENTIRE Art Class DVD Series GIVEAWAY!

See the Light Art Class DVD Series giveaway.  All 9 volumes to one winner. The Unlikely Homeschool


(This post contains affiliate links.)
This past spring, after a crazy-busy winter, my kids and I had the privilege of taking an art time rabbit trail. We tucked our normal art plans aside, and chose instead to use See the Light's Art Class Vol. 1 DVD. We absolutely loved it! Pat's unique style of combining faith AND art technique in an easy-to-implelent video was EXACTLY what this tired momma needed! All I had to do was hit "play." (For more of my thoughts, see my original review.)

But the truth of the matter is, after getting a short respite from my teaching-every-subject schedule, I was ready to jump back into the art teacher role and so we went back to Plan A.  Although I absolutely loved the videos, I also really loved teaching art myself.  

Shortly after our little PLAN B month of art, I suggested Pat's Art Class videos to one of my favorite homeschooling mommas, The Announcer's Wife. Over the years, she has tried several different art curriculums, all of which left her and her children with frustration.

I knew that See the Light's Art Class would be perfect for her and her kids and did not hesitate to recommend it. Excited about the prospect of FINALLY having some art time success, she bought ALL NINE VOLUMES on the spot!

That was six months ago.  How does she feel about the program now???  I'll let her tell you in her own words.  

After searching scores of different art curriculums, and filling our cabinets with art books that left us feeling discouraged and incapable as artists, we discovered Art Class by Pat Knepley. Pat starts each lesson with a blank sheet of paper, just like us! It was a breath of fresh air compared to other art curriculums that start by showing you a finished masterpiece, and leaving you feeling inept and bewildered as you look down at your own starch white paper. She cheerfully and thoroughly explains each step, and we sit comfortably in our living room mimicking her strokes. After a few minutes, we look down at our papers amazed at the outcome! She encourages our spirits, ensuring us that we were made by a Creator, and He has gifted us to do great things. My children have never been so eager to have art class, nor have they ever been so well equipped to make their own masterpieces thanks to Pat's live-action teaching! -The Announcer's Wife

I know there are MANY mommas just like The Announcer's Wife that would love to provide art for their kids, but who can't seem to find a program with REALISTIC expectations.  That's why I am super excited to be able to announce that...(Insert dramatic drumroll)...

See the Light will be giving away (1) Art Class - 1 Year set, Volumes 1-9 to one family. We will be picking a random winner September 15 at 11:59p. Winner will be contacted via email and must respond within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen. All entries will be verified.

  1. We would start with volume 1. We do a lot of arts and crafts projects through other subjects, but with an incremental program I would start with the basics.

    ReplyDelete
  13. We'd start with vol. 1, since none of us have had formal art class until now (1 non-artistic mom, 1 9y boy just recently interested in art, 1 6yo daughter who loves art and does well for being self-taught)

  20. I would start with Volume 1 (The Basics). My daughter enjoys art and I prefer to start at the very beginning of this set if we won it teaching the basics of art. It would definitely cut down on planning time if we won this set. Thank you for the chance to win it!

  33. We would start with Volume 1 since we've never tried See the Light. Sounds like a great art class!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would start at vol 1 because, well it is #1 and I have a hard time doing things out of order! I never cared for art class as I always felt inept, but I have 2 budding artists (3 if you include the dry erase marker on the couch project from my 1 year old) so this sounds great!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Would love some help in this area. We always start at he very beginning; it's a very good place to start. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Would absolutely start in the beginning! I would love structured art lessons for my daughter. We move frequently, so to be able to give her some base work would allow us to place her more easily with new teachers.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The basics as we are just starting out on this journey!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. We would probably have a few different levels but I think everyone would benefit starting with level 1.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This looks so fun! Having someone else (other than me) teaching sounds very appealing:)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Would love something like this. My DD loves art but alas I am not very knowledgeable about teaching art.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Volume one, we are just getting started.

    ReplyDelete

  53. With one in kindergarten and one in second grade, just beginning homeschooling, volume 1 would probably work best for us. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would prefer to start with volume 1 and begin at the beginning with my children!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi, We would definitely benefit from volume 1. I have always felt like I am just not creative at all. Art is one of those subjects that is not my favorite because I am not creative. I try to do it at home because I know that my kids need to do art in some form. My son who is 6 years old still scribbles. I definitely need the help and encouragement. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Volume 1 would be great for our family!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Volume 1 would work best for my family!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Volume 1 since I have mostly littles and NO experience teaching art!

  59. Drawing to go w/Mona Brookes this year :)
