I love to play with color, and two of the best subjects for creative use of color are butterflies and flowers. So this week on the blog, we’re featuring some tutorials on how to draw butterflies.
Since many of these tutorials are in black and white, your children can have some fun coloring their butterflies and making them beautiful.
I hope you’ll get out your art supplies and draw along with some of these artists.

Merry Christmas from See the Light Art!
This time of year, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, who came into the world that we might be saved. As a reminder that Jesus is the reason for the season, here’s a short video where Jim draws a Star of Bethlehem that turns into a cross when a black light is turned on.
This effect is super-easy to do. To recreate it, you’ll need to use white chalk and white invislble fluorescent (black light) chalk. You can buy these at EternityArts.com
Have a blessed Christmas!
Since we’re nearing Christmas, I thought I’d post a video I did a few years back, about how to use black light chalk to create a lighted Christmas tree effect. To make the tree light up, you’ll need to use fluorescent pencils or pastels for the lights. And you’ll need a black light. You can purchase these at the See the Light Art store. You can find links to these supplies below the video.
Draw through the Bible with black light chalk artist, Jim Pence. This video series is designed for homeschoolers who want to have fun learning art and the Bible. And, in keeping with Jim’s black light chalk artistry, each of these projects incorporate black light chalk or paint.
