JUNE 14, 2014 2pm – 4pm Oppenheimer Park | 488 Powell Street FREE | No registration required
Sidewalk chalk is a quintessential necessity for outdoor play, along with bubbles and skipping ropes (which may also be involved…). Join Carnegie Community Centre and artist Edward Nardachioni to put a whole new spin on what you can create with a little chalk and a whole lot of imagination. Come out and create a world of chalk and be part of the world that is being created. Take home a photo of yourself holding chalk flowers, fighting a chalk dragon or falling down a chalk hole. Who knows what will happen but we are sure some awesome images will come out of the day.
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
