My kids have been fans of chalk art for a couple of years now. Even though we include a variety of mediums in our lesson plans, we always come back to chalk, for good reason.
If you haven’t been including chalk pastels in your home school, this is the year to begin. Chalk art is perfect for homeschooling families who have no trouble fitting art into their schedule because they’re passionate about creative projects as well as those who feel that they’re not artistic and never seem to find time for art.
