Chalk Pastel flowers Middle School Art

One of the major set backs of doing chalk pastels in this city is not having a fixative. Normally we would use hairspray. But since the economic situation has worsen here, a lot imports aren't coming through. I went to the local art store and the best they could give me is clear spray paint. Didn't even know clear spray paint existed. What did I have to lose?

The results on the student work was that it made it darker and some of the finer detail was lost, specially the softness. I feel like I didn't have any other options. Perhaps you kind reader might have a suggestion to keep the chalk on the paper and keep it from getting smudged.

We have quite a collection of greenery on campus. The student had the opportunity to walk around and choose what they wanted to draw.
