Sidewalk Chalk Art

For years the city of Forest Grove has had a sidewalk chalk art day. I have always wanted to do one but I can't draw :( The kids, the dogs, and I went to see the artwork tonight.


I was so amazed by the talent!




The  kids and I really enjoyed it...when we saw a scary one Lacie (Janae's dog) growled at it. So I guess it was pretty realistic!


A friends high school age son did this one...


I love the ones with eyes...amazing!



I'm not sure how many there were--but basically the whole town was covered!


 Another friends daughter did this one... 


I really enjoy this every year and it is a goal of mine to have a spot some year. I can't draw...but Wyatt and Chantel can!


 If you have a teenage daughter you probably know this is One Direction...


Which one is your favorite? I have a hard time choosing a favorite!

Time to go home.



Hope you enjoyed our small town chalk art!


Thanks for visiting!

I think these were the best chalk art pictures yet. Thankfully this year they didn't get rained on and the pictures may last awhile. It would be fun for Chantel & Wyatt to do one next year...they draw beautifully.

I love that you can find art anywhere~and that your kids are able to appreciate this with you is super. I have to laugh when I see the doggy parade (your canine entourage)!

Wow, this is amazing! There are so many wonderful drawings! They all look wonderful! I love the dogs on the dog picture! Sounds like you have two entries for next year!

I enjoy looking at the chalk art. It's such a nice thing to do as a family. I think I like the silhouette in the rain and the eye with the butterfly the best. You visited my blog and left a sweet comment about my book boxes so I wanted to let you know that I am following you! I hope you visit me again and consider following me back!
