One of the reasons we love chalk pastels is simply because this medium is frugal art for all ages. As a teacher and a mother, I know I have been intimidated by a long list of expensive art supplies. The fear of the cost and the fear of simply being able to accomplish the art time would make me not even attempt it. At Hodgepodge and ChalkPastel.com, we think that art time should simply be easy to do. Creative times can even be spontaneous. But they can always be fun! Why? Because you ARE an artist!
Frugal. Fearless. Fun.
With our chalk pastel art tutorials we have always suggested that you simply start with a beginner set of chalk pastels. A simple starter set of about 12 chalk pastels can be shared among your children and purchased for around $10.
