Chalk

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 [...]

More ArtWork on the Playgrounds

We wanted to share some of our work from the spring. We have been working with the MDUSD Education Foundation for the last year visiting 30 elementary schools in the Mt Diablo school district (in the San Francisco Bay Area, USA) - so far we have been to 22 school and are making final dates for the rest over the fall 2019. It's been an amazing experience, just amazing, so many precious and profound moments. ~MLW Founder and Creative Director of Drawing on Earth If you are interested in having us visit your school or museum please drop us a note at: info@drawingonearth.org
