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!

  61. 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.

  70. My boys would love Shipwrecked but all the stories sound wonderful

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

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

  80. 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. My granddaughters would really like the Shipwrecked DVD.

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

  98. My daughter would like shipwrecked. 🙂

  99. 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. WOW… These are great!! Thank you!

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

  106. The Gift of Love.

  108. 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!

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

  110. Crossmaker has been on my “list” for years.

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

  112. The Crossmaker!

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

  114. I’ve been eyeing the Crossmaker.

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

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

  117. Shipwrecked would be neat

  118. I think my kids would love Jonah!

  119. 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.

  120. 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.

  121. Shipwrecked! My boys love a good disaster story.

  122. I think my children would really enjoy this! 🙂

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

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

  125. 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.

  126. 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.

  127. 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.

  128. Gift of Love

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

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

  131. 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.

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

  133. The Artist Draw the Bible Story

  134. 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!

  135. The Cross Maker

  136. The CrossMaker looks great!

  137. The Crossmaker

  138. This would be a blessing to our family. I would like to try them! Thanks for the opportunity!

  140. Shipwrecked.

  141. My kids would love all of them, but God’s Runaway would be very interesting to my oldest son!
