“As an art teacher and the owner of Harmony Fine Arts, I appreciate the simple beauty of the new chalk pastel book from Nana and Tricia. The clear tutorials make each lesson easy to accomplish with stunning results from even the youngest of artists. Even for older students, the tutorials teach valuable skills and techniques which can be applied to any chalk pastel project. I love the sprinkling of recipes and the photos that share the closeness this family has achieved by simply pulling out art supplies at the kitchen table, learning together side by side with their beloved Nana. Thank you for the wonderful gift of an ebook that can inspire and nurture a love of art in all of us.” ~ Barb McCoy – Founder, Harmony Fine Arts
