Chalking on the Boston Common

Boston is filled with two of our favorite things: blank pavement and crowds of people -- so it's only natural that one of our main goals is to unite pedestrians with the art around which they suddenly find themselves.  Essentially, we help passersby literally become part of the creation as they are invited not only to watch us draw, but also to take a piece of chalk and add their own masterpiece. 

Some choose to draw a quick picture, others write a short note or even a poem.  Some claim to be horrible artists, others appear to be the next Henri Mattisse.  In the end, anyone who is willing has something to add, and by the time we're done, the sidewalk becomes a canvas filled with the expressive creations of a populous.
