Folks, this has been the longest winter I can remember in years! Every time I think spring has arrived, winter rears it’s blistery head again!
Look, we look love winter as much as the next family. The fluffy flakes mean snowmen and warm firesides, hot chocolate, and ice skating. But eventually, you begin to dream of warm sunny days.
There have been days this “Spring” where we see fog, rain, sleet, hail, snow, sunshine, and a roll of thunder before I’ve even had my second cup of coffee!
Welcome to East Tennessee.
Today, I’m sharing a new art course we recently enjoyed. Just in case you’re needing a spring boost too!

I received access to the Spring Chalk Pastel Video Art Course at no cost in exchange for a review. A positive review was not required. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Exploring Spring with Chalk Pastels
When I heard the Chalk Pastels had a new Spring Art Course I had to check it out. We have enjoyed many other Chalk Pastels courses in the past. Some of our favorites have been the Sharks, Medieval Art, Seashore, and Master Artist Techniques.
Chalk Pastels are perfect for any age because you don’t need any artistic ability to use them.
Cold dreary days can make for especially crabby kiddos. After a super difficult morning, we turned to some art therapy. My kids ADORED getting a taste of spring with the Spring Art Course!
Art is the balm for my kid’s souls. Especially my 5-year-old little pixie.
Art can take cranky, moody children and turn them into calm creative bursts of sunshine.
And when my kids are creative and calm…so am I.
It’s a win/win.

Hello, hello all you artists, this is Nana from Chalkpastel! We are sooo honored to have the cheering support of Erin and her wonderful homeschoolers! This family has taken up the gauntlet of “Complete Education” by adding our pastel chalk lessons to their curriculum…and, in just a very few months, I can definitely see a maturing of skills in BOTH of her students… they post beautiful artwork for all of us to admire…and their smiles prove their enjoyment of the courses that they have taken!
Thank you Erin for taking time to shout out our motto with this great review: Yes, you ARE an artist!
