Art Project Friday

On Fridays we alternate between art projects and nature walks and nature journaling.  Today was an art project; we learned to work with scary chalk pastel.  Using The Usborne Complete Book of Art Ideas, first we practiced or experimented with the pastels, as directed in the book.  

Then we did an art project using the chalk pastels - something I have avoided using forever with my kids.  Maybe you understand why.

The end results are interesting.  I love how everyone has their own style or interpretation.

Chalk pastels are extremely messy.  Be sure to spray the final project with hairspray.
