"Let's hope this excellent production is the first in a series. Highly recommended." --Video Librarian
Although I usually cringe when I see programs featuring art projects for kids (how many trivets and recipe holders can one kitchen stand?), my fears were quickly put to rest with this terrific title featuring beautiful items you might be proud to display in your home rather than bury in your backyard.
Host and veteran art instructor Cherie Lynn combines fun art projects from cultures around the world--including Greek, Australian, Oaxacan, Japanese, Native American, and Egyptian--together with historical and anthropological background on each of the 12 projects here. Viewers can choose between a one-minute preview, a materials list, or simply jump right in to the detailed, well-demonstrated instruction.
Primarily geared toward the older elementary through middle school aged set (for the aspiring artist there are some challenging projects that are more difficult), the DVD also includes printable supply lists, pattern sheets, and instructions.
Let's hope this excellent production is the first in a series. Highly recommended.
"If you're a mom, teacher, Sunday School teacher, or looking for a fun project to do with grandchildren, this DVD provides a literal storehouse of good information that's well organized and easy to understand." --Dove Foundation
This video has so much packed into the 3 hours, that you'll be saying: "This is good bang for your buck!".
There is an overview presented at the beginning, giving the full listing of projects. Cherie Lynn is the narrator/teacher, and everytime she gives the in depth history of what you'll be making, along with a detailed list of supplies, followed by the "How To" instructions. It's easy to stop the DVD, do your work, and then begin again! I thoroughly enjoyed watching Sand Painting, with music in the background. There are also projects titled: Greek Vase, Roman Janus Mask, Plain Indian Shield, African Bean Mask, Gope Boards, Chinese Jar Scroll, Egyptian Picture Frame Mask, to name a partial listing of the fine offerings. I found the history of the Egyptian Frame Mask fascinating, because I've been to Egypt and seen the pyramids. They were used in the entombing process of mummies.
