Art in Space Video Art Course Bundle

Chalk Pastels Art in Space Video Art Course is for beginning or continuing art lessons in the chalk pastel medium. Explore the solar system and outer space with two video art courses and seventeen video tutorials.

Chalk pastels are a wildly successful medium – especially space art! If you have been wanting to add art to your days, now is the time. The galaxy full of art stretches out…

Introduction by Lucia Hames

Whenever you look up in a dark, night sky what do you see? Ah, when I was a child, I used to think that the night time was just a shade that God pulled down over the day and the stars were little pinpricks of light that shone through the shade. But you know better! There are wonderful sights for us to see and paint in space! You can pick up your brightest orange pastel and give it a twist with your fingers in a circle, and, there you have the planet Jupiter, glowing in a darkened sky. Then an oval of palest blue pastel and you have the famous rings around this planet. There is so much to explore in the night sky. Space IS the final frontier! Our sun shines brightly on these planets. Maybe one day, you will be adding your footprints on the surface of our moon? The possibilities are endless – all because you ARE an artist!

Encouragement from Tricia Hodges

This the first chalk pastel video course and ebook the children and I have developed on our own. Why is that important? Well, since we have been enjoying chalk pastel tutorials since 2010, we have been learning that we ARE artists. Nana has been encouraging us and leading in most of the chalk pastel tutorials. We now have the confidence to boldly step out and create tutorials on our own because of our practice with chalk pastels. And we are so pleased to share all we have learned from Nana!

ALL you need to get started! No long, intimidating art list. Just…

  • Chalk pastels — available online or from any art store for less than $10 for a starter set. You will use quite a bit of white chalk pastel sticks. Ours were just little nubs of pastel when we finished. You might consider getting a package of just white chalk pastels if more than one artist in the family is using this course.
  • Paper —  You will mostly use black construction paper for this course. Copy or computer paper you have on hand for just a few tutorials as well.

Chalk Pastels for What Ages?

Chalk pastels are truly art for all ages. No prior skill level necessary. Chalk pastels are a unique art medium. Younger artists find chalk familiar and fun. Budding artists that are upper elementary aged and older, find such freedom in independent time with chalk tutorials and creating what they please. Artists with much more practice still find chalk pastels challenging because of all the layering and ‘painting of light’ they can do. The possibilities are endless.

Super Bundle! 17 Video Art Tutorials + ebook

  • Techniques encourage both new artists and challenge more advanced ones

The Teacher, Tricia Hodges

Homeschool mother of five, Tricia thought she didn’t inherit the art gene from her mother. But as she watched Nana teach her children she started building up the courage to try chalk pastels herself. All it took was practice and both the Easter Art for All Ages and Art in Space digital art curriculum were born! Yes, chalk pastels are such a fun and successful medium.

The Hodges family spent a year studying astronomy and so the resident junior astronomers join us for the videos. They have interesting facts to share along the way!

General Suggestions for Space Chalk Art

If you have been enjoying chalk pastel art tutorials with us for any time you know that we talk about light quite a bit. Before we begin a tutorial, we consider the light and which direction the light source is coming from. With all of these space art tutorials, we suggest you do the same. You will notice that sometimes only a part of a planet is visible. That is simply because the sun is shining brightly on one side. Painting the ‘light’ is what makes your painting look real.

In addition to a starter set of chalk pastels, there are very few supplies we suggest you have on hand. Black construction paper is used in almost all of the tutorials. Sometimes dark blue construction paper. Dampened paper towels or baby wipes make for easy clean up and help in cleaning off hands between colors.

You will also use your white chalk pastel stick quite a bit. Ours are just little nubs of chalk after creating this ebook and course! Enjoy – we had a blast creating this video art course for you!

In addition to a starter set of chalk pastels, there are very few supplies we suggest you have on hand. Black construction paper is used in all of the tutorials. Also, we used a small, dessert-sized paper plate to trace and make round planets. You likely have something similar at home you can use.

You will also use your white chalk pastel stick quite a bit. Enjoy – we had a blast creating this video art course for you!
