It is time to get creative! Sidewalk Chalk Art Program sign-up to participate now!

Posted by admin on August 31, 2015 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

To celebrate the new school year and Blythe Park creativity, we are hoping to chalk all the sidewalk squares that surround Blythe Park with beautiful artwork.  So, come join in the fun!

How does it work? Different from last year, this event will no longer be a fundraiser.  It will just be a fun, creative, family art event.  To participate, please sign-up by clicking on the sidewalk chalk art program button at www.blytheparkpta.org. The button will be located on the right banner.

Squares will need to be chalked with your artistic design on Tuesday, September 8th,  Wednesday, September 9th or Thursday, September 10th.  As part of this year’s Fall Parent Night on Thursday, September 10th, we will have our very own art gallery on display.  The squares will be marked with family name but artists will need to supply chalk.

In addition to chalking after school, children will be able to chalk during lunch recess.  Look for more details in next week’s happenings about chalking during lunch recess.

Tips for great sidewalk art:

  • Create a simple design – either abstract or an object
  • Plan to use the whole square
  • Rub chalk in design and then use your hands to spread over entire area
  • Google sidewalk chart art for ideas
