One of my most popular blog posts is the one I wrote on Chalkboard Art back in May 2012…almost a year ago!…see it here.
With the popularity of hand lettered chalkboard art on the rise…I decided to teach a Chalkboard Art Class at our shop Hip Chick Designs.
I created 3 original sample boards for the class. I wanted to highlight some hand lettering techniques and provide a few chalk art tips.
Our shop is such a wonderful and inspiring place to create! I set up for the class in the studio in back…
First step was to paint our boards with actual chalkboard paint. I like to use the Krylon brand chalk paint, available at your local hardware stores and Sherwin Williams paint stores…
Chalkboard paint also comes in a spray paint version…but I like the coverage and results of the brush on type best. To read a complete tutorial on how to make a chalkboard, visit my post here.
After our painted boards dried, it was time to get to the fun part…the art!
Each of the ladies chose different samples and I love how unique each board turned out!
A fun day of creating was had by all!
