With a nod toward spring time sports and also painting a pastel that would be appreciated by boys and girls alike, my students and I have enjoyed working on a baseball and bat pastel! This is very simple and can be completed in about 15-20 minutes with only four steps!

- A note on chalk pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons (50 free lessons now) are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable. Nana also teaches acrylic lessons.
- The practical aspects of a mess: Pastels are blessedly messy. We always have baby wipes close by to wipe hands. We wear something we don’t mind getting stained or don a smock.
- Encouragement: How to Start Art with Little Ones and How to Add in the Joy of Art.
