This episode is sponsored by You Are An Artist Chalk Pastel. Nana says, “There are NO others on air like the Homeschool Sisters! We take their advice and listen intently to the experiences that they have had teaching their very own children, because these girls KNOW homeschooling: yes, the good, bad, and the ugly! Here in the South, it takes us ten minutes to finish a sentence because we speak so slowly, but the Sisters are a rapid-fire of answers for you all! If we could reach out and give them both a big hug, we definitely would…Thank you both, we still call you our honorary Southerners! From our heart to yours, Nana and Tricia.”

At ChalkPastel.com, we are a homeschool family of three generations offering no-fuss video art lessons for all ages. Lessons are taught by Nana (Lucia Hames) and produced by her daughter, Hodgepodgemom (Tricia Hodges) and the Hodgepodge.

Nana started teaching her five grandchildren around the kitchen table a decade ago. Tricia has been homeschooling since 2000.

Maeghan Macdougall says, “Totally unexpectedly, these lessons have become an anchor. I have something they can all do that is brief but focused, fun but productive. They get a complete, tangible proof of effort. A little breakfast, a little prayer, a little Nana. Priceless.”

There is a lesson library for preschoolers to advanced masterclasses. Choose from self-paced to special live lessons. Use our curriculum match up guide or art planner – or simply choose what appeals to your artists – and enjoy art in the way YOU learn best!

Rachel Hoffman says, “This is one of the reasons, I, Mom, love chalk pastels. Not a lot of supplies, inexpensive, and not a huge mess to clean up after we are done.” That’s right! All it takes it one, two, three. Chalk pastels, construction paper and video art lessons. Grab your free set of Getting Started in Chalk Pastel Art lessons and give them a try!

Sarah Mackenzie of Read-Aloud Revival said, “…my kids are quite smitten with Nana and chalk pastels, both! One of my twins asks to do them about 10,000 times a day.” Not yet a member? Join Nana for her I Drew It Then I Knew It series to match the beautiful learning already happening in your home! Over SIX HUNDRED video art lessons for all ages.
