I am adding this Art Lab Chalk Pastel lesson quite apprehensively because I didn’t actually do these lessons with the girls. Lillie blessed me by taking over the little one’s school work when I was up to my elbows in Charlotte and her Latin! Thank you, Baby.
Being as organised as I am (not), I can’t find the Art Labs book at the moment, so can’t even add some information from there. Sorry!
Art Lab: Chalk Pastels: Trying Out The Medium
What I do know, though, is that this lesson was all about using chalk pastels. The girls used some flowers they had given me for Mother’s Day (I think!):
They started out lightly, adding more and more detail as they went along:
The smile on Bec’s face tells me she had lots of fun 🙂

Art Lab Chalk Pastel: Geogia O’Keeffe Study
The artist they studied was Georgia O’Keeffe and her beautiful big flowers:

And managed to cover almost the whole page in flowers:
Lillie then took them outside to draw some flowers in their natural environment:
I have to admit, I love seeing my girls drawing together peacefully in the sun:
I have no idea where the resulting pictures have gone to. probably hidden away somewhere with the Art Labs text book!
Good job girls, and thank you very much Lil!
