Chalk the Block: Next Generation

Written by Tess Carragher on 08/17/2016

For the 20th Annual Chalk the Block, a chalk workshop was offered by Nate Baranowski to inspire the next generation of chalk artists. Offering in the Box Factory for the Arts on Friday night, this workshop was filled, and created more eager chalk artists for our growing festival (hopefully!). Even beyond the workshop, young artists were more engaged than ever in Chalk the Block. Here's a look at a family piece, and more!
