This week.end I will be participating in the 24th Annuall Pasadena Chalk Festival. This year I have channeled my inner Van Gogh and painted his portrait for the art auction, if you would like to purchase this painting, it will be for sale at the chalk festival and priced to sell. Hope to see you all there. For more information about the chalk festival, click on the flyer below.

Last week I had the privilege to create a chalk demo at Martin Luther King High School in Riverside, CA for their annual Chalk Day. Basically every year the kids can sign up and the lucky ones who get accepted to participate can spend the day out of their normal class schedule and create a chalk square all day. This is one of the best ways for a High School to incorporate art into their curriculumn and inspire students to become future artists. I had so much fun, I created a chocolate donut.
This is my demo for the kids at Chalk Day, a chocolate donut!
Progress on the chocolate.
Starting the demo, you can see the kids in the background starting their own chalk squares.

Had a wonderful week-end at the Chalk Festival at the gorgeous Ventura Harbor Village. If you missed it this year, you should really come to the next year’s event.

My masterpiece is finally finished!
These are just a handful of the chalkers who participated in this event in support of Food Share and community outreach, thank you to the event organizer Barbara Hinton for an amazing event.
Had to share this because my chalk square was one of the squares that made it on the cover of the Ventura Breeze!
