It’s always fun to paint outside! And this snowman is doing just that. We love that this tutorial offers such a wonderful amount of space for individual creativity. This snowman paints whatever YOU want him to! Enjoy Nana’s Snowman Paints Chalk Pastel Art Tutorial.
Not only can you make the snowman just like you’d like him, you can design your background, plus – decide what your snowman will paint!
Please enjoy this video Snowman Paints! Chalk Pastel Art Tutorial
See how each artist chose different topics for the snowman to paint? A self-portrait by 11-year-old. Notice how the snow is blue – especially the shadows.
A lovely Christmas tree by eight-year-old (with a stack of paintings the snowman finished).
Nana also drew a Snowman Express for Lil’ Buddy to color in and finish. Complete with a snowman as the engineer! Make your own following the Train Chalk Pastel Art Tutorial!
You can even make a snowman family in the snow like 11-year-old Middle Girl did. Remember – it is YOUR painting and you ARE an artist!
Featuring You! 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, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons are here: 100+ Free Art Lessons for All Ages 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.
