Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Sketch pad
  • Pencil sketch
  • Chalkola Premium Chalk Markers

Step One

Maria Raczynska, a self-taught artist based in California, likes to share her creativity on YouTube.  She has her own channel so that those interested in art can watch her tutorials and demonstrations.

self-taught artist

Step Two

Maria worried that by sharing her art on YouTube she was losing control of her intellectual property.  Unscrupulous people could pirate her videos or capture stills of her work and claim them for their own.  She needed to find a way to protect her art yet continue to share with those who enjoyed it.

Step Three

Chalkola Premium Chalk Markers were the perfect solution.  Maria found that if she used a Chalkola chalk marker to write her name in her workspace it would be very hard for someone to steal her material.

Step 4

Now Maria can enjoy making videos without having to worry about losing her intellectual property.  All it takes is a signature, a couple of minutes to make sure the marker is dry, and everyone can enjoy her beautiful creations.

Step 5

She usually starts with a pencil sketch to insure that her video goes smoothly with no errors.

Colors mean a lot to Maisie, an artist who recently tried Chalkola chalk markers.  She makes her living creating pattern designs as well as coloring pages so she is always receptive to new approaches and tools.  She uses her YouTube channel, Ma’at Silk, to demonstrate creative uses of color and different coloring techniques.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Wine glass

Maisie has a lot of art supplies for her work.  Here you can see her collection of Chalkola chalk markers and the swatches she made of all the different colors.

work on glass

Since Chalkola chalk markers work on glass, Maisie is going to see how well they do on her stemware.

drawing petals

She starts at the bottom by drawing petals around the stem.  Decorating any sort of drinking glass is a great idea, particularly if you’re having a party.  Guests won’t wonder if the glass they are picking up is theirs, they’ll know because their name will be on it.

names on the glassware

Besides printing peoples’ names on the glassware Maisie thinks it’s nice just to decorate them.  Chalkola’s colors are so vivid that they are hard to miss!

base of the stem

She fills in the space between the petals at the base of the stem.  The two shades of green really look nice together.

wine glass

In a matter of minutes Maisie has transformed her ordinary wine glass into a work of art! Chalkola chalk markers can be used on any non porous surface to brighten up a room or make an ordinary item special.

Sarah Chu loves to experiment with new things and recently tried Chalkola Premium Wet Wipe Markers.  The 27 year old yogi loves art, crafting, and finding new materials to work with.  Along with her sister, Lauren, she has a YouTube channel where you can find a little bit of everything.  Sarah filmed her review of Chalkola Premium Wet Wipe Markers on their YouTube channel and had a lot of fun with them.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • Small chalkboard
  • a glass
  • damp cloth or towel


Sarah enjoyed creating this design using all the brilliant Chalkola colors

Chalkola design

She liked the packaging, which was sturdy enough to be used to store the markers until she chose a permanent place for them.  The instructions on how to use them and clean up were easy to understand.


The first marker Sarah chose was the jumbo 3-in-1 purple marker.  She is surprised at the vivid color and how easy it is to use.

Sarah learns the hard way that you should not over-saturate the marker’s nib with ink.  As you can see, the colors will run if there is too much ink dispensed.

Sarah then tries the regular sized markers and decides that she prefers those for the type of art she likes to create.

Time to try the metallic markers—what fun!  She likes the metallic gleam and the variety of different colors Chalkola provides.

Preparing to use another type of surface, Sarah chooses the jumbo white marker.

Sarah really had fun experimenting with all of the markers.  She was very impressed with how vivid the colors were and how easy it was to clean them off any non porous surface.  In particular, she liked the way she was able to quickly remove the color she dripped on her clothing when she overfilled the marker.

Yong Chen and his daughter Lily are trying Chalkola chalk markers for the first time.  Children love using Chalkola markers because of how easily they are to use as well as how brilliant the colors are.  Mr. Chen is a well known illustrator and painter, has authored several children’s books, and is the creator of the EnjoyingArt Learning Community.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Sketch pad
  • Chalkola chalk markers

Step 1

After her dad opens the padded envelope they were shipped in, Lily lined up the markers neatly so that they could see all the colors they have to choose from.

Step 2

Yong Chen opens his sketch pad so that he can see what the chalk markers can do.

Step 3

Lily tells her dad that he needs to shake the marker before using it.  They both like the sound of the ball mixing the ink inside the barrel of the marker as it is shaken.

Step 4

Mr. Chen is surprised that the purple marker has a white nib but quickly realizes that the nib needs to be depressed several times to draw down the ink.  He uses the side of the paper for this until he sees that the nib is saturated.

Step 5

Lily watches as her dad begins to draw.  His own father taught Yong to make the face of a man using the numbers 1 through 10 and now he is showing his daughter.  The numbers 1 and 9 are used for the top of the hat and 8 forms the brim.

Step 6

Mr. Chen is using a different color marker for each number in the drawing.  He has chosen pink to make the number 7 which will form the back of the head.

Step 7

The drawing is finished and Lily has labeled it “Portrait of a Farmer”.  She is enjoyed watching the numbers become a recognizable figure and using the green chalk marker to print the title of the picture.

Step 8

Mr. Chen dips a cloth in water and carefully wipes away the dots of color left by preparing the chalk markers.
