Maybe a seasonal study, the Great Backyard Bird Count, Apologia’s Flying Creatures, nature study and more. You can have an I Drew It Then I Knew It homeschool bird study.

Here is a fun fall blue jay to paint with Nana’s video art lesson.
For over a decade now, we have built a love of art with Nana and our favorite art medium – chalk pastels. In that time, we have decided on our favorite chalk pastel art sets. Because we are a multi-generational homeschool family, we like to keep things frugal – so all ages can enjoy rich art at a low cost. We found that Alphacolor has really wonderful, student-grade chalk pastel art sets. These sets are full of beautiful sticks of color!
Speaking of favorites, our true favorites are you artists! We love to see your photos of your beautiful chalk pastel paintings. We love having you in our You ARE an Artist Clubhouse. And so we are giving away some of our favorite chalk pastel art sets.
In celebration of you artists, we are giving away four (4) total sets of chalk pastels. These chalk pastel sets are Alphacolor student grade beginners sets of 24 chalk pastel sticks. (Our favorite brand!)
Simply follow the instruction in the rafflecopter widget below to enter for a chance to win. We are giving away two sets here on the website. THEN, after entering here, head over to Instagram to enter for a chance to win a chalk pastel starter set – one for you and one for a friend!

In this video, Nana shows you how to apply a fixative to your finished chalk pastel painting. By applying fixative such as a simple layer of inexpensive aerosol hair spray, you can preserve your chalk pastel art. Nana also discusses framing a chalk pastel painting under glass.
