Learn how to draw a garden spider with chalk pastels with Nana’s video art lesson! This tutorial was inspired by the garden spider and the web she built right out the Hodgepodge family room window. This is not the first time a garden spider chose to build her web within view. And so, the grandchildren pulled out the southeastern field guide.
And Barb-Harmony Art Mom suggested on Instagram that we make a garden spider our next tutorial. And, so, here is Nana with a video art tutorial. Watch the video below and paint your own garden writer spider!

Remember you can make the spider’s squiggly “z” writing in the web too!
Here is a photo of the garden spider outside our window.
We had a great time learning to paint our garden spider – with all our ages. So much so that we enjoyed even more spider nature studies with webs!
We also had fun hunting for cobwebs and painting a web with chalk pastels!

- 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 more in Getting Started in Chalk Pastel Art.
- 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.
