Christmas chalk pastel art lessons have helped me make a chaotic holiday weekend just a little bit more delightful for my children.
On those days, or weeks when life happens and throws you for a loop, art can be a beautiful way to both process and reconnect as a family.
Because art helps us to calm down and focus.
Throw in a bit of hot cocoa and some gingerbread and suddenly a stressful day becomes something magical.
*Years later, we still like to take a cold, grey, and rainy day and brighten it by adding our own warmth, and color with hot cocoa, a sweet treat, and of course chalk pastels!
Oh, and Christmas carols playing in the background!*

Festive Christmas Chalk Pastel Art Lessons For Kids
When we suddenly found ourselves in a family emergency over the weekend, I turned to chalk pastels to help my kids deal with the challenges we faced.
Folks, art is a wonderful thing and can also help us heal emotionally. I don’t know what I would have done without this amazing resource this week! It seriously saved my bacon and helped bring cheer into our home!
You Are An Artist!
Chalk pastels are easy to use even for the less than artistic persons. You really don’t need any artistic ability to enjoy this fun art medium!
My children ADORE “Nana” and her chalk pastel courses.
She always reminds them that they “Are An Artist!”
