Chalk Pastels have become a regular part of our homeschool art time. We absolutely adore them. Some of my children are more artsy than others, yet chalk pastels have turned out to be a wonderful medium for all of us – it’s forgiving (for those of us not so artsy) and allows our imaginations to run wild as we create!
I’m a fairly crafty person, but artistically gifted? Not so much.
I would never have had the courage to tackle chalk pastels in our homeschool without the help of Tricia Hodges’ chalk pastel ebooks. They have totally revolutionized our art time!
The tutorials are simple enough that even my 4 year old can follow the directions, yet they leave much room for my olders to practice their own creativity.
