The third Chalk It Up! Sittingbourne Chalk Art Festival was once again, a huge success! The theme was 'Heroes and Idols', however artists were free to create whatever they wished.
Here's a look at some of the fantastic work that was created on the walls on and around the highstreet
This fantastic portrait of John Lenon was created by Henry Slack
This pretty piece of chalk art was created by Nicola Lockshire-Green
Emma Foxley and Claire Jackson, two talented textiles artists from the Sittingbourne area, created these stylised portraits of their idols - Alexander McQueen and Vivian Westwood.
Myeisha Childs created this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Murals - Heroes in a half shell TURTLE POWER!
London Graffiti artist MROPTKL created this piece inspired by Marilyn Monroe.
This pretty chalk art by Adele Young was created on the side of a new hairdressers on the high street, acting as a great bit of promotion.
This colourful fantasy piece was created by local artist Chloe Eeps. She mainly used chalk paints to create this vibrant and striking artwork.
We also had activities within The Forum shopping centre, including free chalk drawing for children (and some adults!) and larger pieces of indoor work being created on the floor on big pieces of paper by registered artists.
As is tradition, we also had a large group 3d piece of chalk art being created on the Sunday by Dean and some enthusiastic volunteers! This year it was a Tiki God in a pit of lava that the public would interact with!
It was another fantastic event that we could not have put on without the help of all of our wonderful artists and enthusiastic helpers and volunteers (and EMUs!). A big thank you to everyone who took part.
