You can now travel to Great Britain with chalk pastels! Explore Big Ben, Queen Elizabeth, Winston Churchill, and much more in this unique and colorful way. Nana will be your guide on this historic trip filled with key icons and landmarks with chalk pastels Great Britain themed art.
My son has a fascination and intense interest in Great Britain. It started last year after his deep dive into World War II. Did you know he even requested a wall mural of the British flag on his bedroom wall for his 13th birthday?
Chalk Pastels Great Britain Themed Art with Nana
So, when I saw that the Chalk Pastel You ARE AN Artist Membership had Great Britain themed art, I just knew my son would be excited.
And he was!
We started with some special British treats, tea, and the chalk pastels map of the British Isles.
We became even more excited to learn some of the interesting facts about the places and things we were painting.
Queen Elizabeth Chalk Pastel
When we painted Queen Elizabeth II on her throne we learned about the symbolism and history behind her clothing, her throne, and what used to be beneath it!
Big Ben Art
Did you know that Big Ben IS NOT the clock tower, but the bell inside the tower? Did you know the tower itself is called Elizabeth Tower?
I just love learning right alongside my kid’s!
Winston Churchill the Artist
I never knew that Winston Churchill was a famous artist! I only ever studied him as the great statesman that helped Great Britain through World War II. But there is a chalk pastels Great Britain lesson on this famous artist! Nana even has a podcast about this extraordinary man and artist!
Did you know that he was nervous about painting in the beginning? This amazing man was apprehensive about adding the color to the canvas at first! How incredible is that? Yet, after he got over his fear the colors became therapeutic for him.
I think we can all learn something from that little tidbit!
