 Product Review

{Sponsored Post with Affiliate Links}


Welcome back to Art Class with See the Light’s Art Class Volume 2.  This is the second product review in a series of nine.  The Art Class lays the foundation for future art courses children may take.  Each art DVD includes lessons, tips, and a gospel message.  I continue to enjoy how Pat shares God’s message in her art classes.  The Art Class Volume 2 is no exception.  She beautifully connects her art teaching with scripture.

The title of today’s class is “Shape and Space” and it includes four lessons with a bonus.  I will give you a synopsis of each lesson.  So get out your art toolkit and let’s begin.


Lesson 5

Shape Up Part 1


You will need the following supplies:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Charcoal


This lesson is especially good for younger children and for those who have very little art experience.  Pat Knepley, Master Artist explains the basic shapes.  She also shows how you can take part of a shape and change it into another one.  For example, a teacup has a round opening.  Moving the cup slightly turns the opening into an oval shape.




All shapes are made up of lines and circles.  Manipulating the shapes will create a different object.  A triangle and a circle may be changed into a cone.  You can draw a football by adding lines to an elliptical shape.  The same thing is achievable with a circle.  You can create a beach ball, an orange, and a piece of candy just by adding a few lines.

Special Message:  Pat shares how shape is important to God.  I never really thought about it until she read a verse in 1 Kings.  It is about King Solomon building the temple of the Lord. 

            “The second cherub also measured ten cubits, for the cherubim were identical in size and shape.”

                                                                                                                   1 Kings 6:25


Lesson 6

Shape Up Part 2




McCaws and Parrots are such beautiful birds.  Their colors are so vibrant.  It brings joy to my heart when I see God’s creation.  Pat shows how placing tracing paper over a picture of a McCaw allows us to see the basic shapes that make up the bird.




Pat goes on to show the steps of how to draw a cat using the basic shapes. 

  • Large oval = the body
  • Small oval = the head
  • Triangle = the ears
  • Large rectangle = the front of the body
  • Small oval = the eye
  • Small triangle = the mouth



It is important to keep the lines light when drawing.  You will then be able to erase what you do not want in order to create a more realistic drawing. 

Special message:  Shape is also important to God for we are shaped in His image. 

           “Your hands shaped me and made me. . .”

                                                                 Job 10:8


Lesson 7

All about Space


You will need the following supplies:

  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Black construction paper
  • White construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors




Pat explains negative and positive space.  Children will often create hearts by cutting the shape from a folded piece of paper.  This is a great example for explaining the concept of negative and positive space.




Ben Shahn and Picasso have drawn perfect examples of positive and negative space.


Special Message:

            “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.”

                                                                                                            Proverbs 16:9 


Lesson 8

Putting It All Together – Line, Shape, and Space


You will need the following supplies for this last lesson:

  • Pencil
  • Large piece of paper
  • Eraser
  • Leaves




Children will learn how to create an illusion of depth in their drawing by overlapping leaves.  Begin by planning the composition by arranging the leaves.  Once again it is important to draw what you see rather than trace an object.  Keep the lines light so it will be easy to add in the details later.

Here is my daughter’s leaf composition.




Special Message:

             “And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”

                                                                                     Matthew 10:30


Art Class Volume 2 was mostly a review for my daughter so she did not complete a project for lessons 5-7.  As always we enjoy doing art with Pat Knepley and we look forward to Volume 3. 

Until the next review, you are welcome to visit my Art Class page where you will find another product review and art blog posts.


To my friend Pat Holt,

Thank you for your graciousness in allowing my daughter and me the opportunity to review Art Class Volume 2.
