Teach Bible Stories with Art

I love finding great art resources for my kids, mostly because I’m not all that artistically inclined. Even better if the curriculum helps teach or reinforce Scripture.

There are several resources we’ve enjoyed over the years that use art to teach kids. Sometimes the most simple solutions are the best. Right now, we’re using Bible Drawing Notebook for my artistic 10 year old. She simply reads the indicated chapter in the Bible, draws about it, and jots down her prayers and drawing description.

Another resource we’ve enjoyed is the See the Light Bible Stories DVDs. They’re great for any family whether they homeschool or not, using fun and instructive art projects to teach Bible stories in fresh new ways! There are artistic explorations of Bible stories including Easter Christmas story, the Apostle Paul, Moses, and Jonah.

This is a sponsored review post and giveaway in cooperation with See the Light. All opinions are my own. 

Teach Bible stories with art! I can't wait to try the Bible Stories set from See the Light! Kids get to see the stories explored in a fresh new way and do some fun art projects too. It even includes ideas for sharing the gospel!

The See the Light Bible Stories are a set of 5 DVDs. Each one focuses on a different Bible story. The kids will watch an artist illustrate the story along with a dramatic retelling and then do some fun art projects centered around the theme of the story. There are even ideas for how to share the gospel with others! 

Here are a few things I love about how these DVDs are put together: 

  • Bible stories your kids likely know and love explored in a fresh way
  • Your kids enjoy watching beautiful art being created
  • Fun techniques with chalk pastels, colored pencils, and even backlight! 
  • Downloadable lesson plans and ideas

We have some budding artists in our home and I am positive we will enjoy this series, especially if the video clips and reviews on the See the Light web site are any indication! Click here to check those out. 

The Bible Stories DVD Set includes the following: 

  • The CrossMaker – Easter story
  • God’s Special Surprise – the story of Moses
  • Gift of Love – Christmas story
  • Shipwrecked – Apostle Paul
  • God’s Runaway – Jonah and the whale 

There are so many fun ways to teach Bible using drawing and art!

    I think my children would like the Crossmaker the most, but they would enjoy all of them!

    I think my kids will love Jonah and the Whale because they recently wrapped up a unit in Sunday School on it and can’t stop talking about what it would be like to be swallowed by a whale!

  10. Lori

    This sounds interesting ~ I don’t homeschool, but I have no artistic ability whatsoever, so I think my boys would enjoy these. Thanks!

  11. Sherida

    I love the idea of sharing Bible stories through art. Art touches on more than one sense for me, and to connect that with favourite stories in the Bible sounds like a fantastic opportunity!

  12. Rachel R

    I think my son would enjoy the water color lesson from the first disk.

  13. Christina

    I love teaching with art!

    I think the feature that my kids will love the most is that in The Crossmaker, it takes a character that they’ve never heard of and fits him into the story of the gospel.

  17. C Cupit

  42. rachel plett

    I need this for my Sunday School class!

  43. Josi Casebolt

    These look so neat! I’m not sure which one my kiddos wood like best. Maybe the shipwreck one.

  44. Kathy Brockelman

    I think any of them would be great

  45. Rebecca Robinson

    My kids have learned to appreciate art but seeing HOW it’s created is something they don’t grasp. I think that they will be excited about that with any of the stories. Maybe it will give them confidence in their own talents.

  60. Karra Kroeze

    This would be a fabulous resource!

  61. Debra C

    My daughter is very artistically minded. She’s always drawing and coloring and creating. And while I enjoy those things, I struggle to incorporate art into our homeschool. I’ve tried a ton of different programs to try to be more intentional about it. Perhaps combining art with another subject will finally do the trick.

  62. Stephanie H.

    My daughter would love the drawing lesson using colored pencils and making her own black light reveal.

  63. C. Webb

    I’m interested in God’s Special Surprise.

    This is fantastic! M y daughter would love it. She loves art and to put it with bible lessons would be great.

  70. Eva Daniell

    My boys would love Shipwrecked but all the stories sound wonderful

  72. Abi F

    I love them all, but Jonah is a family favorite

  73. Amy Cahill

    My kids love a good story and I’m always incorporating some sort of artwork or craft into school time. I could also see using this in our co-op.

  74. Stacy Golmon

    What a great giveaway! We would love to win!

    1. Stacy Golmon

      I think we would like them all, but shipwrecked would be my pick.

  75. Kelly Stowe

    Shipwrecked is something that would catch my son’s attention for sure!

  76. angela

    I think my son would enjoy Shipwrecked the best with see the light art projects with the black light and create letters that look as though they were built with weathered wood and nails..

  77. Lisa Hyatt

    These look so amazing. My kids are very artistic and visual learners. This would be amazing. The crossmaker looks like my fav!

  78. Barbara

    I dont think i could choose they all look wonderful. Bible based so children would love them. Thank you for the giveaway. I homeschool 10 children so this would make some of homeschooling easy and enjoyable

  79. Agne Sima

    All of them looks very interesting, But the CrossMaker would probably be a winner! 🙂

  80. Kelly Kiggins-Lund

    My son would love any of the DVDs in this series as he loves learning and talking about his God. If we had to choose just one, Id say The story of Jonah because he likes how the fish “urps” him up and how we can’t run away from God.

  81. LeAnn Harbert

    My granddaughters would really like the Shipwrecked DVD.

  82. Gale

    I think they’d enjoy any of them, but maybe Shipwrecked most.

  84. Gale

    Hi. Your text about your giveaway says it ends 2/6 but the giveaway form says it ends in 41 days. Looks like there’s a typo in there somewhere. Thought you would want to know.

    1. Tauna

      Thank you! I fixed the form 🙂

  85. Coleen M.

    I think my girls would enjoy God’s Special Surprise.

  86. Jen Boudreaux

    I think they would like them all, but especially The Cross Maker.

  88. Cynthia

    Jonah is always a favorite, but I love the Christmas story too!!

    My kiddo loves art and the Bible, so this DVD set would be perfect for her! I think that she would especially love the Easter story!

  92. Sandy

  93. Jennifer Keller

    My kids would like the cross maker.

  94. Isabel

    I think we’d really enjoy the Crossmaker!

  95. Betsy Stone

  98. Margarete

    My daughter would like shipwrecked. 🙂

  99. Sally

    My kids love to do art, but we have not pursued pastels. I know they would love some instruction in that area. Also, learning from dvds seems to hold their interest more than books. Learning to draw by doing Bible stories is so much better, too. Thanks for this opportunity.

  100. 9kids

    WOW… These are great!! Thank you!

  101. 9kids

    I think The Cross Maker will be a big hit with my children. How wonderful to be able to witness with art. SO EXCITED!!

  102. Sally

    My kids would most love seeing the artist drawing the story, and hearing the dramatic retelling.

  103. Adrien Nuechterlein

    What an amazing DVD set! As a family, we would love “The Crossmaker”or “God’s Special Surprise”. These look interactive and what a fresh idea to learning for the whole family! Thank you for the opportunity of the giveaway, Tauna.

  104. Krista

    Always looking for new ways to hear the Bible (‘faith comes by hearing’) these DVDs add Seeing along with uncomprimising art lessons! Sounds like the whole series is a win win.

  105. Kristel

    These all look amazing, I have never seen them or heard about them before. So, glad to hear about them through you. I think my boys would like the Shipwrecked, my daughter would probably like doing ALL of them.

  106. Jeniffer

    Shipwrecked looks like a good one.

  107. Katie Bazemore

    The Gift of Love.

  108. Teresa W

    I think they would be especially interested in God’s special surprise.

  109. Meghan A.

    I think they would like Shipwrecked, especially the pastel drawing project. They are always wanting to do more art, but that is definitely my weak area!

  110. Emily

    I think my kids will love the art component. One loves art and the other loves to watch and learn new things.

  111. Zekesmom10

    Crossmaker has been on my “list” for years.

  112. Melissa Cazares

    All my kids love drawing. My 9 year old daughter especially would be thrilled to have this.

  113. Charis

    The Crossmaker!

  114. Christy Gould

    My kids love ANYTHING art-related. Their favorite TV show is about art — one based on the Bible would be even better!

  115. Ticia

    I’ve been eyeing the Crossmaker.

  116. Michelle

    Art class has come a long way since the days of glitter and glue! This looks like a super neat curriculum!

  117. Holly Grenoble

    I’m not an art lovers as far as doing it myself. But I think these would be neat lessons for homeschool art class

  118. Brittany

    Shipwrecked would be neat

  119. Karyn Ashley-Smith

    I think my kids would love Jonah!

  120. Cathy

    It’s so hard to narrow down, as each has such wonderful lessons! God’s Runaway would be a great reminder of God’s grace and mercy towards us, even in our disobedience and poor choices.

  121. Angie

    After going through a stage of being shipwrecked and running away from home schooling our kids this would be the perfect start with a solid foundation with Christ leading.

  122. Jaci

    Shipwrecked! My boys love a good disaster story.

  123. Cynthia Haynes

    I think my children would really enjoy this! 🙂

  124. Carrie Gowan

    Always looking for ways to get my rowdy boys to enjoy art 🙂

  125. Brandi Vidrine

    My little ones love art and we are always looking for ways to incorporate it into our school day.

  126. Liz C

    My kids are so artistic they would love them all. Yet, I think they would truly enjoy God’s Special Surprise. They all (ages 4, 11, 13, 15, 16, and 20) love the story of baby Moses.

  127. Tara

    I have never heard of these before, but they sound great. I love art and my daughter does too. It would be a great way to engage children with the story.

  128. Grace

    My youngest has been enthralled with baby Moses in the basket since she was small, so I think she will especially enjoy that story, but anything to do with art will be a thrill to do. I love the idea of combining art and Bible stories. What a neat way to teach art concepts.

  129. Nema Meshreky

    Gift of Love

  130. Katie Anne

    My son is a real artist and he would love this program!

  131. Sandra Byus

    Not for sure which of the Bible stories my kids might be more drawn to. Crossmaker? Shipwrecked?

  132. Angela Beauchamp

    Since I am terrible at teaching art this would help me and my kiddos immensely. My daughter’s favorite story is Jonah and the Whale so I was happy to see it offered here.

  133. Amy

    We love STL, but we don’t have these. We’d love to try them out!

  134. becky fisher

    The Artist Draw the Bible Story

  135. Jacqueline Wilson

    I think my son might be a little young for the program right now but he’d love to watch it and listen. We could do the lessons when he is a bit older. Looks cool!

  136. Kim H in GA

    The Cross Maker

  137. katie

    The CrossMaker looks great!

  138. Jill Miller

    The Crossmaker

  139. Jody Martin

  141. crystal mccord


  142. Jenni L.
