Even though I enjoyed art myself, I was resistant with my kids. It took time to get the supplies and it was always messy. In my head, I imagined fantastic art projects, but never found the time to do them or buy the supplies.
I wanted to find ways to incorporate art instruction into our homeschool, but I’ve had a hard time figuring that out! I purchased A Seasonal Start in Spring Chalk Pastels from Hodgepodge. It was such an easy solution! My kids thought their pieces were MASTERpieces! I think that is what I liked most about this activity… we followed the instructions and got great results! Pastels are such an easy medium and this gave my kids the confidence and desire to do it again!
