A Successful Chalk Festival

Last weekend was the 1st Yukon Chalk Art Festival, which I had the pleasure of producing for Unlikely Events Yukon.

It went sooo well. Everyone had a blast making beautiful chalk art, taking chalk art workshops with local artists Nicole Bauberger and Emma Barr, and playing in the sunshine with all the other artists.

I was so relieved the rain held off for us. We only had to take the giant tarp out once, and as soon as we did, it stopped raining. Thank-you Mother Nature. ❤

I really hope this event grows every year. Chalk art is an amazing medium, and such a fun activity to do on a sunny summer day.

Also if you’re around Whitehorse tomorrow we will have the chalk out again at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre for National Aboriginal Day! Come celebrate and create a chalky collaboration with us.
