I had the privilege of traveling to downtown Tampa to do some chalk drawing at the annual Gasparilla art Festival at Curtis Hixon Park. March 1st-2nd. It was a beautiful location and was run so well! Myself along with 3 other chalk artists created 8×8′ pieces on cement board by the entrance of the festival all day Saturday and Sunday until 2pm. I had a great time and met some talented and kind artists. Next up I am traveling to Safety Harbor, Florida March 22nd for the Bloom N Chalk Festival! I’m excited!
