You can get different types of lines by changing the stroke type. After you select your drawing tool (try using the Vector Path Tool - it's in the set of Vector tools with the Pen Tool), look in the Properties Panel for the stroke type. You will probably see something like Soft Line or Hard Line - open that menu and look through the available stroke types, and you'll find crayons, markers, pencils, etc.

I get a crayon/chalk effect using the following:

Draw with the pen tool set on 1 pixel soft. From the texture drop down select Burlap at 90% with an edge of 60.

Vary the settings depending on how thick your line is.

One could also use both Chalk and Pastel in the same drawing if one wishes. The smearing of chalk produces more variation in coloring than with Pastel. Also, one could draw over a smeared image to get additional textures.
The key is to just experiment, have fun and enjoy painting.
