See the Light Cartooning!

Hey Neighbors!

We were allowed to review Cartooning from See the Light.  See the Light is a Christ based art course. My daughters really had some fun with this one.  Cartooning is a DVD course for children ages 5 and up.  Yes, my daughters are older, but they still really enjoyed the course.

Running time on the DVD Cartooning is approx. 60 minutes, but we did it in two parts.  This way they were able to practice what they learned and try using their own style before moving on.  This program has sparked their interest in drawing, so we picked them each up a drawing pad and some other supplies.  On our recent trip they added a few more drawing books to our collection and practiced drawing on the trip.

They started out drawing eyes and quickly moved on to other features.  They made vegetable characters, characters out of numbers, and eventually drew a short cartoon.

The lessons are informative and easy to follow.  The teacher Pat Knepley explains each step as she draws and also throws extra information in for your child's learning.  For the course you will need:

  • Several sheets of plain white paper (any size)
  • A #2 pencil
  • A pencil sharpener
  • Good white or gray kneaded eraser
  • A fine point black marker
  • A thick black permanent marker

You can purchase the Cartooning DVD through See the Light for $14.99.  If you have a young child or even a slightly older child who has an interest in drawing this would be a great choice to get them started.

See the Light offers many different drawing options for your child so be sure to visit them and see the other choices.  You can also click on the banner below to see what other Crew members have to say about the courses they reviewed.
