The 2016 Denver Chalk Art Festival

Over the weekend, my husband and I had a chance to go down to Larimer Square for the 2016 Denver Chalk Art Festival. Almost 250 artists had 2 days to draw their picture for people to vote on. They each got a square section and went to work.

I loved seeing the beginnings of their work and the finished product the next day. Some of the below pictures show the artist and the picture they are actually drawing from. The area was packed with people lined up to watch them.

Here are a few I liked…
