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. Adults enjoy chalk pastels too! The possibilities are endless.

Since Nana didn’t get to meet any of you in person this year, she is sharing a mini online homeschool conference booth! Please let her know your favorite art lessons! She would LOVE to hear from you! You can chat with her and leave her a comment either on Instagram or on Facebook. Or feel free to send her a message via the chat here on our website.
We are celebrating over a decade of art lessons and we invite you to join us! Friends, we recently realized that we have over 600 video art lessons in the You ARE an Artist Clubhouse and growing! Wow! That is worth celebrating! We also talked about how Nana shared her first lesson with her grandchildren back in 2009. Read more about the celebration here.
