Got chalk?

From front porch decorating contests to backyard fence murals, Americans are coming together to lift each other up with art as we collectively battle with coronavirus pandemic.

Under stay-at-home orders, thousands of people are turning their immediate surroundings into the most unlikely of canvases. Many are using sidewalk chalk both as a creative outlet and as an opportunity to cheer up their neighbors while following social distancing guidelines.

Walking around your neighborhood and local parks, you’ve probably noticed an increase in chalk art. On sidewalks, driveways, cul-de-sacs, etc., adults and children have been leaving inspiring messages and hopeful drawings. On social media, a quick perusal of the hashtag #ChalkYourWalk shows thousands of these homegrown works of art.

It’s a movement that’s getting cooped up families out of their houses and working towards a common goal: getting us all through this unprecedented time with our health and our sanity.

We love this idea! It’s a great way to get outside and spread positivity.
