This is the week to create your Sidewalk Art Masterpiece! Sign-up by Wednesday.

Posted by admin on September 15, 2014 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? Sidewalk squares can be purchased for $3.00 each. Purchase a family square or one for each member of your family.  Come up with a cool artistic design and come chalk your square this Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.   Check out the special events for each chalking day! The goal is to have our very own art gallery on display for this year’s ice cream social being held this Friday evening.  The weather forecast looks perfect!

“Chalk with Family and Friends” – Wednesday, September 17th

Gather your friends and family and come chalk your square after school or in the evening on Wednesday

“Chalk with the Principal” – Thursday, September 18th

Gather your friends and family and come chalk your square with Principal Casimira Gorman

“Chalk during Lunch Recess” – Friday, September 19th

Don’t have time to chalk after school or in the evening or need time to finish your started design by Friday? Chalk your square during your lunch recess on Friday.

To sign-up, click on this link http://www.blytheparkpta.org/forms/sidewalk_art.asp.  Once sign-up is complete, send your payment in an envelope to the Blythe Park office with “sidewalk chalk” and family name written on the envelope.  Look for an e-mail with your square location to be communicated on Wednesday.

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
