PHOTOS: Art at the Center Hosts Chalk Draw
Children, adults take chalk to pavement to create mural of colorful designs in center's parking lot.
Alexandria-area children flocked to Art at the Center Friday morning for the organization’s annual Big Chalk Draw.
The community art event was held from 8 to 10 a.m. at the center, located at 2804 Sherwood Hall Lane. Children and adults took chalk to pavement in the center’s parking lot to create a patchwork of colorful designs, drawings and hopscotch boards.
“It’s a good opportunity to practice getting up early for school, and we can get out before it gets too hot, and really just have a community art event and let the kids use the parking lot as their canvas,” she said.
The event also included a collection of new book bags and school supplies to benefit Good Shepherd Housing & Family Services.
