Hello everyone, wow, times sure are interesting. Drawing on Earth's main focus has been going into elementary schools and chalk drawing on the playgrounds with all the kids. Last 2 years we have been working close to 30 elementary schools (approx. 15,000 kids) with the Mt. Diablo Unified School District (San Francisco Bay Area, California) through a grant from the MDUSD Education Foundation. Times have changed. At least for now, 650 kids on the playground sharing chalk, running around, drawing, drawing on each other - is a thing of the past. We'll just see what happens. In the mean time since we are based in creativity we'll just create some other ways of sharing the goodness of the [...]

Our fundraiser went way better than expected - thank you everyone! Awesome... we'll buy some chalk. We get our chalk from Koss International (213-383-2474.) We buy the set of 24 soft pastels, and then break each piece in 1/2 so there is more to go around. Ever wonder what 16,000 pieces of chalk looks like? Well... We also use chalk by Eternity Arts. These chalk are larger and more expensive, I save them for me and the larger areas. This is what they look like being made. They also sell bricks of chalk which are just crazy. You should see the kids go crazy when they see them. I also just use them for larger areas. Photo [...]
