General Suggestions for Seashore Chalk Art

In addition to a starter set of chalk pastels, there are very few supplies we suggest you have on hand. For paper – regular copy or printer paper works very well. Construction paper is also wonderful for the layering and blending of colors. It is our favorite. Dampened paper towels or baby wipes make for easy clean up and help in cleaning off hands between colors.

For this course you may also want to have a seashore field guide on hand to refer to. It is nice to refer to a field guide to see the colors and to just learn more about each topic!
