Free Art Video Instruction!

I really love Jan Brett's books. They are absolutely beautifully illustrated in very realistic form and my children really enjoy them. One of her newest books, Honey...Honey...Lion! we found at our library and the children just loved it.


 



 


Her site is full of free coloring pages, cursive and manuscript printables, bookmarks, and all sorts of other wonderful free things for your homeschools! I recently learned that she also has some fabulous free art instruction videos too! I sat and watched the one on drawing a bunny and it was a full 11+ minutes long and really wonderful. I cannot draw much at all so to see someone with talent draw with such ease--well, it really is something to me. I am rather art challenged unless you are my not-so-picky three year-old who loves anything I draw because it is more exciting than the lines and circles she currently tackles. I think she is not far behind me though!






On other thoughts, I found this quote somewhere, and I really really liked it. Here it is:


 


"We think of God as a miser of happiness, keeping back from us all that would make us happy. We think that by running away from Him we will be happy, wild, and free. But it doesn't work that way. Instead of happiness we find misery. Instead of freedom we find the debilitating bondage of sin."


- James Boice


 


I think there is so much truth in this quote. The world craves its own way, but the way of the world is death. What a wonderful compassionate God we serve! "While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Why? What did we do for Him? Absolutely nothing--yet He died for US. Tremendous love and tremendous power of mercy!! Thank you!
