Finally came up with a name for the present project.
A Tale Drawn Around the World
Got the url: www.storybookplanet.org
Now we get to build a new site.
I also wrote a draft about the project, an ad for Craigslist for Board of Director and team players, and a Children’s Museum proposal. If you are interested or know anyone, have them get in touch with us. We can work virtual.
2003 artist Mark Wagner had a vision about creating the world”s largest chalk drawing.
Why? to raise awareness of the non existence of art teachers in the local elementary school district, to help raise funds for art teachers and supplies, and to give the kids a creative experience they would always remember.
Five years later, after 2 years of hard work, it happened. 6,000 people (over 3,800 elementary school kids), 90,000 sq. ft. (almost 2 football fields), two weeks, and a photograph from a satellite 425 miles up.
Guinness World Record award, 2010 book.
The nonprofit, Re-Enchanting the World through Art was created out of this project. Mission: to support and inspire the creative spirit in youth and community.
An 80 page book, Small Town ~ Big Vision and a 30 minute documentary film were produced and currently seeking publication and distribution.
Next project begins: Storybook Planet. Five year project creating large community chalk drawing on all seven continents telling one big story.
Goal is to create a global collaboration creative art experience that gives kids and communities a sense of belonging and contributing to something greater.
Create a book to give to the United Nation and world leaders sharing the creative love!
First page of the book – Dec. 2009: Caracas, Venezuela. 1,500 children and community chalk drawing over 2 days. Event combined with an one day 3D chalk drawing Master Class for professional artists. Extremely successful event.
Storybook Planet: Nonprofit for Board of Director and Team
Storybook Planet: nonprofit global kids/community art project seeking board members and team.
Storybook Planet: A Tale Drawn Around the World. Interested in art, kids, local and global communities, and a big adventure? A five year global community art project is beginning and our nonprofit is expanding. We are looking for a few passionate, professional, fund raisers, design and media specialists, business and visionary leaders. Partime, possible paid positions as we get funded.
Artist Mark Wagner created a large community art project in 2008 that set a Guinness World Record for the largest chalk drawing. 90,000 sq. ft. (almost two football fields), 6,000 people (over 3,800 elementary school kids), two weeks, and a photograph by a satellite. The goal was to give the children a creative collaborative experience that they would remember, raise awareness and funds for the Arts in a school district with NO art teachers in the elementary schools. A book and documentary film have recently been completed about this project.
Dec. 2009 Wagner began Storybook Planet by creating the first page of the book in Caracas, Venezuela. It was a huge success! The next step of the project is to expand the Board of Directors, develop a team, create proposals, fund raise, design a new web site, and continue to take the show on the road. We like to create 2-5 large chalk drawings a year and cover all the major continents of the world.
