So exciting to have just completed our 6th annual AutismHWY Chalk Festival event.
Wow. So many wonderful people helping to lift the bar from Autism Awareness TO Autism Acceptance. The Artist’s and families that devote their valuable time to join us are ‘our superheroes on the ground!’
One of these beyond fantastic participants was Rod Tryon. If you will remember I introduced Rod to the Chalk Festival fans in this blog. We were honored that he chose to start his 2016 portfolio off at our Festival! Thank YOU Rod for your herculean efforts to chalk with us on this OH SO challenging year! We hope to be the event that kicks off his amazing season of street ART each and every year moving forward. Rod’s wonderful image that skewers perception so precisely rocked our world purrfectly!!

WOW….this IS powerful good news. Rod Tryon will be joining us next month on April 9th here in Covina! We are so honored by ALL of the immense talents shared with us each and every year, and it just keeps getting better!! Rod is one of those Artist’s whose work just commands attention. His art is something fantastic to see, no wonder he has traveled the world with his trusty chalk! We are honored that he will share his valuable time and talent with us this year in Covina , California at our 6th annual event. Lucky US! The Artist’s that ‘paint street’ are a whole other breed of animal and I am soO glad that OUR Autistic Artist’s will be mingling all day with greatness while witnessing first hand techniques that WILL astound.
It IS so important for Artist’s to share their process when they can! Those of us always looking for tricks can learn so much being in the presence of these talented masters. It’s such a magical thing to see. A blotch of concrete transformed into almost anything one can imagine…and sometimes things one just can’t!!
What an interesting and talented man. make sure you come out to see just what he has up his sleeve for all of us. Meanwhile take a look at these great pics all found on his fabulous facebook page!

JOIN US April 9th and BE AMAZED by pavement and chalk!
