Welcome the Christmas season with a beautiful Christmas wreath! You can learn from Nana how to draw a Christmas Wreath with Chalk Pastels then you can hang it up as a decoration. Or you might decide it needs to be a gift for someone you love. Either way, you will have fun with this quick and easy lesson Nana shared with her grandchildren. And you will learn that you ARE an ARTiST!
How to Draw a Christmas Wreath with Chalk Pastels
- Suggested supplies: There are just a very few suggested supplies: white construction paper. Green, light green, red and black chalk pastel colors.
- A note on chalk pastels:Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons are here: Our Favorite Chalk Pastels
- The practical aspects of a mess: Pastels are blessedly messy. We always have baby wipes close by to wipe hands. We wear something we don’t mind getting stained or don a smock.
