This week we used Chalk Pastels as our choice of mediums from Chapter 5. We are a week behind, but I could not fit in DwC because of Drama Camp and VBS.
I was able to get a set of Chalk Pastels for less than $5.00 at Walmart, and they met our need. I did buy the really nice Pastel Paper, and it was fun choosing different background colors. I would recommend it if you can afford it.
We moved away from Nature drawing this week, and the girls all made still life pictures, and Joy-Bug did her own thing, as per her anxiety level. Barb on her Squidoo site, has a great video on using chalk pastels. They blend, layer and are very forgiving.
