There is truly something glorious about the explosive combination of people, colorful chalk and blank canvas pavement. This simple formula creates MAGIC. Just try it and experience the intense equation of personal power, love for this colorful life and the unveiling of one’s spirit. I see this each and every time I am in the vortex of this 1-2-3 equation. It is such fun when people spontaneously connect through chalk, time and self expression. It’s so moving to see; that more and more people, are feeling the chalky LOVE!
Last night at Covina Park, the Covina Parks and Recreation summer program…presented the last Movie Night of the summer featuring Disney’s Zootopia! The Covina Police Department was in full community connection engaging with the crowd while providing fun trivia and prizes for audience participants. Before the film began kids were encouraged to test their PD skills and given fun opportunity to get crafty by creating animal necklaces and trying out CHALK~ART!
So fun to see emerging artists with very definite passion, ideas and techniques. I was so impressed to see youngsters using their phones for image reference and color matching! WOW. A 6 yr. old at the chalk table looking for that perfect pinky/peach for an inner rabbit ear!
So many stories of determination and complete connection to source! Isabel is becoming a veteran chalker! Look for her in 2017 at our April 1st AutismHWY Chalk Festival event.
I loved these twin brothers with Monsters Inc. on their dual minds…
Another fantastic thing you will see at chalking events, are tributes. Tributes that reflect the collective feelings and vibes of the generation, of what is felt currently. When iconic figures fall those people and concepts are often contemporaneously immortalized… lovingly in chalk. So timeless and timely ALL at ONCE.
The young artist pictured below was excited to have created a Pokeman ball and Pikachoo to capture withOUT the cellphone!
I am inspired too Ashley. Inspired to leave the E out of important concepts where EGO gets in the way of love and joy. Foregoing an E every now and then would do us all a world of good. Thank YOU!
We all need to take advantage of the opportunity to create in spontaneous experience like this. It is at the HeART of our human nature and it feeds our souls. We were born to it and can all do it beautifully no matter who we are or how we are in time and space!
Be the creative amazing human beings we were ALL born to BE.
