Using only pastel chalks (which are environmentally friendly), Artists transform the streets and sidewalks into living art. Watching art come to life is considered a performance art and has an immediacy that gives every piece a uniqueness that can never be truly duplicated. There are many street painting festivals in the United States (mainly in Florida and California) and also in Europe, Australia, and Asia.
Proceeds from ‘Chalk About It’ will benefit Life Essentials’ unique and specialized programs that enrich lives by educating and inspiring clients to be in charge of their mental and physical health.
