This is an easy overview of chalk/ soft/ hard pastels that doesn't overwhelm the beginning "artist" with a barrage of technical terms, self marketing, or other "skills," "fancy equipment," or outrageously demanding supply lists. It's got an easy project (that's easily adaptable to your personal preferences for the kind of art you might like), and the instructor speaks clearly with excellent annunciation.
