Make beautiful outdoor chalk drawings using soft pastels.


  • Step 1
    Draw an outline of your design with white chalk. If desired, use tape to mask off areas or create straight lines.
  • Step 2
    Starting at one corner, moving diagonal across your square, use the large sticks of Freart Chalk to color in larger areas.
  • Step 3
    Take the soft pastels and make detailed highlights and shadows to finish the drawing. Remove tape.
  • Optional Tip 1
    Use latex gloves to keep hands clean and protect fingers while blending chalk.
  • Optional Tip 2
    Apply a coat of tempera paint to the ground before drawing with chalk.
