Sidewalk Chalk

What would you draw with chalk if you thought it would come to life?

Here are some ideas of patterns and designs that are easy to draw if you need some ideas. Many of these pictures are of Chantrell Creek students’ sidewalk chalk drawings. Try smudging the chalk with your fingers to make the colours more bold.


Look up at the picture of Chantrell Creek that is over the staffroom door. Did you know that the chalk artist Martin Hayes drew that with chalk?
