  • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm : Sidewalk Chalk Art

    YMCA of the Fox Cities, 218 E Lawrence St, Appleton, WI 54911, USA

    Come see a chalk art masterpiece in the making with artist Amanda Zehren on the sidewalk in front of the YMCA for Appleton Children's Week. Call the YMCA with any questions at (920) 739-6135.

    Meet the artist, Amanda Zehren! – How did you became a sidewalk chalk artist?
    One day 10 years ago I was walking down the Walmart toy aisle trying to find something fun to bring home for the kiddos. I saw a box of sidewalk chalk that was different than any box I'd ever seen before. It had a black piece in it! When I saw that, it hit me like an epiphany. I could do anything with chalk that I can do with any other medium. So I brought the box home and stole my sons Nintendo pamphlet. I selected a picture of Mario jumping out of a wall knowing I had a vertical concrete wall behind my apartment. I chalked the Mario in 3D jumping out of it and it turned out so cool that I realized I was on to something. So I started a one woman movement where I made a list of friends and family where I would just randomly surprise tag their sidewalks in front of their homes. I made fun cartoon characters with cute messages. While I was on that mission, Sidewalk chalk competitions started popping up all over the state, so I started competing. And I won some too! Alas, I don't do the competition's anymore as the competitive aspect lost its appeal, but I still do political activist pieces and fun commissions.
