Summer Reading Chalk Walk

To help Launch Summer Reading, we will be having a chalk walk on June 8th at 10 AM. This event is based on an Italian tradition of street painting that dates to the 16th century, known as i madonnari (street painters). Using pastels, artists (you!) will create artworks that highlight either their favorite books or space (the theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program).  Individuals (over the age of 7) and families with no training in art are encouraged to participate.  Chalk pastels will be provided. Come prepared to get dirty and a bit covered in chalk dust. Spaces are limited so sign up at the Youth Services desk.
