A Spring Chalk Pastels Art Tutorial & Spring Nature Study Resources

Here in New York spring is coming around late as usual.  But that doesn’t mean we can’t prepare to get outside and explore nature!  While others actually get to get outside to see bird nests, we are just creating them in art class!  Using the Spring Chalk Pastels Art Tutorial from Southern Hodgepodge we have created our very own birds nests!  I have also compiled a host of FREE and low cost Spring Nature Study Resources!
