One of the fun things that Nana, the children and I have been doing is Facebook Live Art Tutorials. Most every Wednesday at noon eastern time, we been sharing live chalk pastel art tutorials on the ChalkPastel.com Facebook page. We’ve also visited a few Facebook pages of some friends.
Because it can sometimes be hard to find these art tutorials once they have been shared, I thought you would like them all here in one spot. Then I can update them as we share future tutorials.

Video Art Tutorials
What began as chalk pastel art tutorials in written form years ago, we are now sharing via video art tutorials. If you and your students learn best with video art lessons, I encourage you to take a look at all we have to offer. We have found such freedom and success with the chalk pastel medium.

Chalk Pastels for What Ages?
Chalk pastels are truly art for all ages. No prior skill level necessary. Chalk pastels are a unique art medium. Younger artists find chalk familiar and fun. Budding artists that are upper elementary aged and older, find such freedom in independent time with chalk tutorials and creating what they please. Artists with much more practice still find chalk pastels challenging because of all the layering and ‘painting of light’ they can do. The possibilities are endless.
