Denver Chalk Art Festival 2011


Every year there is a chalk art festival in LoDo (lower downtown.)  Often we miss it but this time we caught the very end, which was great for seeing finished pieces.  Unfortunately, there were so many people crowded up next to the edges that we missed several great drawings, trying to manuever through the crowd.  However, I was justified in insisting we catch this when Zoom pulled out his sketch pad when we got home and started drawing.


I like how this girl is watching herself being drawn...

You could definitely tell who the chalk artists were: 

To see my whole set of pictures, check out my flickr set, and while you are there you can type "Denver chalk art" into the Search box and see all the drawings and artists that other people captured.  I especially like the drawing of the cows, there are pictures at several stages, but we didn't see that one while we were there.

Oh how cool! I love to see chalk art -- it's so amazing. I especially love the ones that look just like you could jump right into them!
