Cinco de Mayo Sidewalk Chalk Art Fiesta

 

Art in Society was true to form in May, uniting four creative and caring Idyllwild organizations for the Cinco de Mayo Sidewalk Chalk Art Fiesta.

The Art Alliance of Idyllwild, Art in Society, Idyllwild School’s PTA and the smARTS project all teamed up to participate in this community art project. Enthusiastic participants ranging from 6 to 60, all rolled up their sleeves and got “hands-on” / “hands-dirty” to see to it that downtown Idyllwild sidewalks were vibrantly decorated in sidewalk chalk murals.

 

A successful afternoon indeed, as the funds raised (approximately $1,500.00) were donated directly to smARTS, who provides approximately 300 art classes to Idyllwild Elementary School students per year, and are very deserving of our assistance.
