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. 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. 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!
