We’ve seen quite a few hummingbirds this summer. At dawn, when a few of us would go out on the back porch, we would find the hummingbirds already perched in the mimosa tree. Or a hummingbird or two flitting about, making their familiar little chirps. What amazing birds they are!
Nana offers you a Hummingbird Video Chalk Art Tutorial so you can enjoy making those beautiful wings and the tiniest feathers. A hummingbird in motion. Art in motion – in a little more than four minutes. Almost as fast as a hummingbird!
How to Draw a Hummingbird in Chalk Pastels
You might even add the flower the hummingbird is stopping by and a beautiful, blue sky! Enjoy and be sure to subscribe to our Hodgepodge YouTube channel for more free video art tutorials – because you ARE an artist!

- 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 chalk pastels, plus the video The Very Few Must Have Supplies for Chalk Pastel Art. 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: You Can Be an Artist! 10 Day series and Art for All Ages 10 Day series
