A Simple Start in Chalk Pastels on the iPad mini 2Easy Art Lessons with Beautiful Results

Chalk is familiar – something that we all enjoyed as a child – drawing on the driveway or the chalkboard. Chalk pastels are a forgiving medium and produce stunning pictures in a short amount of time. Most lessons can be completed in 5-15 minutes.

“My children love art.  As a busy homeschooling mom, I appreciate art lessons that are easy to implement AND produce stunning projects. Chalk pastels are the perfect medium to accomplish both goals!  Tricia and Lucia have done a splendid job sharing simple, step-by-step directions for oodles of chalk pastel lessons which will result in amazing artwork – even for those who don’t believe they are artistically talented.  (Believe me.)” ~ Cindy West, Owner, Shining Dawn Books and author of NaturExplorers series
