Chalk Art

We love chalk art.  It is inexpensive, easy and fun.  We experimented with 3D art, making creations together and mixing water with the chalk to make chalk paint.   To make chalk paint the kids just scraped some of the chalk into a cup and added water.  Chalk art is also a great community activity since every time we do it we always get some neighbors and kids walking by to join in.  Did you know that you can also use chalk in your paintings on top of acrylic paint for shading?  For example once your painting is dry, you can add a complimentary color for shading such as green chalk pastel to make one side of a red apple darker.  Just smudge it in with your fingers for instant shading!

I would love to see your chalk creations.  Send them to  Try to do some 3D effects and watch the reactions you get as people walk by.
