Chalking is such a simple and fun art medium to use... one we don't break out enough. Don't get me wrong, it is used in our home but I think we need to incorporate it more. This particular project was very easy to practice shading techniques with rubbing.
I created a pumpkin out of white glue and let it dry fully. Then she chalked the page - practicing shading in each section of the pumpkin. She was working on some creative blends, soon learning it was not quiet what she wanted. Chalk is forgiving that way - new layers and rub away... colors fixed! She did a fantastic job on her artwork - as did dad... we love how he used drastic colors compared to Holly. Same project, yet so different!
We will be trying this again soon with leaves... coming soon!
