RE: sidewalk chalk - help?

Don't know if it has been said before but, I use sidewalk chalk like it is
paint. What I mean is put the chalk down in the regular way and then go
back over it with a wet brush. This makes the chalk stay on the sidewalk
and not blow away. Also, using black last and outlining makes work pop.
Don't forget to put "picture frames" around the work and have the kids sign
it and have a title.

Subject: sidewalk chalk - help?

hi there everyone,

i have been assigned a mission to take my art club to an arts fair and we're

supposed to make a giant sidewalk chalk painting. I attended last year's
national conference here in NYC and remember going to a presentation about a

sidewalk chalk festival that a high school had started in San Diego.
Unfortunately, I can't find any info on the actual process. I have a slide
of the painting we'd like to do, and I've blown it up and drawn it to about
4'x6' but at this point i'm at a loss. Does anyone have any information or
leads for me. I've been surfing the net for 2 days and I'm running out of
time. Thanks for whatever help you can give me.
