Why should you gift Chalk School?

Do you have hard to buy for DIY types on your list? Are you looking for a unique experience gift for the creatives in your life?  Know someone who rather do something than get something? Then you should send them to Chalk School. Amber Van Houwelingen,  the sign and chalk artist behind I DO SIGNS,  teaches this fun, hands-on class all over the Grand Rapids, Grand Haven and West Michigan Lakeshore area.  Your gift recipient will learn all the tips and techniques to make neat, professional chalkboards and sign art of any size for home decor, weddings, business and more. They will leave this fun, informative class with skills, materials, knowledge and a completed chalkboardchalk and chalk ink marker to keep, plus access to a support network to continue creatively chalking and sign making.  


Each class is loaded with tips on chalk products and applications as well as methods to create signs of all colors and materials--not just chalk (BONUS!).  We will practice several lettering and chalk techniques together before we create the final project on an 8x10" chalkboard to keep--and it will be a keeper. Really. [See pics of all the other past students and their amazing sign art here.] All materials will be provided and after class students will have access to the Alumni webpage and the Alumni Facebook group to continue learning, growing and sharing sign art.



Check out what Chalk School Students are saying about the class HERE and see all the awesome sign art they made HERE.
