It’s the middle of summer and Covid-19 still has all outdoor gatherings cancelled! That still doesn’t stop us from making art at home. This year I participated in Chalk Mafia’s first annual Epic Virtual Chalk Fest for the Fourth of July weekend. I challenged myself by creating a flag with lots of folds in it.
Lunar New Year is the most celebrated holiday in Asia with many large festivals and events held around the world. The San Gabriel Lunar New Year Festival is a unique festival that consists of a Street Food Fair, Marketplace, Kids Zone, and Chalk Art! The 2020 Lunar New Year is the Year of the Rat, so our squares this year consisted of cute little scoundrels, coincidently, the Old World rat or “true rat” originated in Asia.
