Chalk and glue art projectHere is how I made my cover art for a new paper from Strathmore.

It’s very thick and black, perfect for those projects that always made construction paper flop and wrinkle. I’m not sure which art stores carry it, but it’s available at good old Amazon right now (see my link below).

Follow the steps below to see just how I made this art. Once the design is chosen, it was easy!

• Black Chalk paper
• White glue
• Chalk pastels


1. Draw design in pencil, trace with white glue.
