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.
Check out all of the beautiful photos from the event, courtesy of Alistair Maitland Photography.
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.
The 3rd chalk video I made for Unlikely Events Yukon is about Nicole Bauberger, who is not only one of the 10 featured artists at the 1st Yukon Chalk Art Festival, but will also be teaching a chalk art workshop for adults on Sunday June 12, 2016 from 1-4PM in the parking lot of dana Naye Ventures on the corner of 5th and Black St. in Whitehorse.
The 2nd video I made for Unlikely Events Yukon is about this rad chick, Taylor Karpyshyn Levitt that was on my soccer team this winter and who happens to be an incredible artist & photographer. She just tried chalk art for the first time… check it out 😀
I’m coordinating the 1st ever Yukon Chalk Art festival on June 11 & 12, 2016 for Unlikely Events Yukon- and so I’ve been making weekly videos about some of the featured artists. The 1st video I made is about my amazingly talented fiance LYNDSIE.
