Got to chalk next to good friend and artist Marcella Swett this year. She made the lovely portrait on the left.

The best part about the festival is that it is located right across the street from the beach! Took a short break in the water to cool off and enjoy the soothing waves of the ocean.

Chalk Demo At Martin Luther King High School

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.
