Art Project #81- Chalk Pastel Lighthouses

Ian asked to do an art project using chalk pastels and requested a scene with boats or a lighthouse.  Never one to dissuade my kids from doing art I set to work looking around for something we'd have fun making together.

I'm loving that the boys are starting to request and ask for certain types of art projects! Now that we're getting near the end of our 100 Days of Art Projects it's getting harder and harder for me to keep coming up with fun and unique ideas.

We finally settled on using this Lighthouse project from Art Projects for Kids.  We followed her step by step drawing instructions and then when we were happy with our drawings we started adding color using chalk.

The boys decided to make sunsets and used all sorts of beautiful colors for their sky and water reflections; something I really wish I had thought to do!

They enjoyed blending the chalks and playing around with adding a driveway, garden, portholes, and all sorts of other little details!
