Kids Participate in Street Painting Art at 2011 Cityfolk Festival in Dayton, Ohio
This was my first time chalking at the Cityfolk Festival in Dayton, Ohio. It was also my first time chalking in Ohio! Since I lived in Dayton for about 8 years, and was very involved in the arts (DVAC!), I was very excited to come "home" and share my new art form with the community. I was also thrilled to be able to bring my 16 year old daughter, Carmen, with me to assist. She was born in Kettering, and is an amazing artist in her own right. We decided to include an area around our art for kids to participate. This was the first time we did it like this. We had a lot of kids join in, and I think we would have had even more if it had been a little cooler. Below are some photos of the kids "getting dirty."
