Art is not just a hobby in my home, it's a passion. That's why I jumped at the chance to review See The Light's latest Art Project DVD, titled "Sunflowers".

I received this product free from See The Light in exchange for my honest review.

The "Sunflowers" DVD contain 4 educational and inspirational lessons with the amazing Pat Knepley. Each lesson explores the life of Van Gogh while gently guiding the student step by step through the process of creating their own sunflower art in the style of this well known Dutch artist.
To begin our project we needed to purchase a few supplies including a 11x14" piece of charcoal or pastel paper. 
Since I had 4 children excited about the project I bought two large sheets (one grey and one tan) then cut them down to size. Super affordable. 
We also needed  . . .
  • a set of oil pastels (at least 24). I bought a set of 50 at Hobby Lobby for only $9.99.
  • paper towels
  • several artificial sunflowers. This is the most expensive of the materials needed. Purchase them at Hobby Lobby before March 30th and you can use this 50% off coupon.
  • and baby wipes for easy clean up. 
Through the lessons, children will learn so much about Van Gogh, not jut as an artist, but as a man. I definitely learned along the way too. For one, I never knew that Van Gogh aspired to be a Pastor. He actually went to seminary but never passed the test. 
Along with guiding children on their artwork, sharing prints of Van Gogh's work and imparting thorough historic knowledge of the artist, Pat Knepley also references the Bible, quoting scriptures and addressing spiritual concepts along the way. 
I never knew Van Gogh's life could be a platform for such relevant topics like handling disappointment and trusting God's plan and purpose for your life. 
The tone of each lesson is friendly and nicely paced. 
Your children will LOVE this project and so will you when their masterpieces are completed and you are hanging their own Sunflower project on the wall.
As I said earlier, I had 4 children working on this project. The project is intended for children 10 and up, but with some supervision younger children to try their hand at Van Gogh's style as well. My children are 5,7, 9 and 11.
Here are their final creations . . . .
Impressed? I sure was! These are all being matted, framed and added to my Mommy Gallery.
