Chalk Art

Today Holly learned about chalk pastels in art. This can be a messy little activity, but a fun one and her first time really trying art chalk out. She created a design on black paper with a white crayon and then used bright colored chalk to color it in. Her goal here was to learn how to hold and use the chalk, only one piece broke -- not too bad!

For the second project we discussed blending chalk, she saw some examples and then tried her fingers at it. Holly then created a free 'scribble' to blend several chalk colors.

When you are done coloring with chalk you want to lightly spray your art project with an aerosol hair spray to set the chalk - it will limit the dust and smearing.
