We are in birthday season here at Hodgepodge! In honor of all birthdays, Nana shares a birthday cake chalk pastel art tutorial in video form. It is simple art lesson and fun for all ages!
Art in just FIVE minutes!
If you have been looking to add the joy of art to your days, try this! Beautiful results in a short amount of time encourage everyone! One of the biggest complaints we hear at Hodgepodge is about the mess art supplies cause and the amount of time and effort it takes to do a project. Nana’s video will show you just how simple and just how FUN chalk pastels are.
Just click the video below to follow Nana’s instructions.
Good work! You ARE an artist! Happy Birthday to YOU!
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.

I can’t wait to get started using these lessons. This looks like fun and something even I can do. Thanks for the video. I’m very visual so this was easy to follow.
