North Woodside Chalk Art Festival

I walk through North Woodside pretty much every day with my dog Charlie and one of the great joys I get is admiring the local hieroglyphics we find on our walks etched on our sidewalks in chalk.

Sometimes they are rainbows.  Other times airplanes and dinosaurs.  And yet others, they are shiny happy stick people.   But the art is always wonderful and joyous!

I’d like to encourage a celebration of local creativity in the neighborhood as we kick off the first official week of summer and challenge folks young and old to break out the chalk and draw on the sidewalk the week of June 20.   It can be silly or monumental.  The artists can be adults or kids (or adult children).   What is important is to share some color and art with other folks in the neighborhood!

Then I’d like folks to take pictures of their chalk and share them – we can post to the NWCA Facebook site or Listserv.

Who’s in?   Let’s get ready to draw!
