A number of schools had the chance to let their artistic flair shine at Chalk-A-Doodle Days.
Nearly 800 students from Lansdowne Public School, St. David Catholic School, Copper Cliff Public School and Churchill Public School found themselves on the ground, creating works of art on concrete during an event geared toward students.
The students' work was photographed by Artists on Elgin, and will be displayed at the gallery throughout July.
Meanwhile, plans are still in place for the community event on July 7.
“Chalk-A-Doodle-Day has generated quite a lot of interest from the public and we are really looking forward to the big day,” Shelby Ramm, business manager and information officer at Artists on Elgin, stated. “This is a great opportunity to come out and get creative.”
The entire community is invited to decorate the municipal-metered parking lot at the corner of Larch and Elgin streets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free and chalk will be supplied.
