Chalking at your own school is fine, but CHALK CHAMPIONS require public spaces for a genuine enriching urban art experience! It's still a free country gosh darn it. What are they going to do, kick out a bunch of cute red-blooded AMERICAN kids? Never!
Let's see some drawing!
FREE ONLINE CHAMPION SIDEWALK CHALKING TUTORIAL...
step 1 - alright, pick a clean dry spot. Now let's start by blocking or thinking out your drawing. Draw a construction sketch with light blue or green.
step 2 - once you have a map of your drawing, it's time for the fill or base colors! thicken to taste. Sometimes, if i'm drawing a building or a statue, I like to let some of the natural concrete color poke through. In this example the chalk is laid down pretty thick. You get rubbing pretty fast, it can be like touching a belt sander. Keep those fingernails trimmed and watch your fleshy nubs!
step 3 - cut out, shape, define the hard edges with charcoal. This makes your drawing POP! Charcoal is what separates you from a civilian sidewalk chalk artist. I prefer the natural hardwood lump charcoal you can buy in the BBQ section of your supermarket or food coop.
step 4 - blend in the highlights, the brightest color you have... most times your white. If surface is glossy keep your highlights as dots. If a matte surface blend the edges...
EXTRA TOP SECRET NEXT STEP: GLITTER! ***WARNING*** Sometimes using glitter on your sidewalk chalk drawing can be like throwing a bucket of gasoline on a campfire. SO AWESOME!!!!
Let's take a time out to view some of these kid's chalk drawings...
That's a great robot sketch Max!
Little Hobart here likes to draw angry birds. I encourage kids to draw copyrighted intellectual property and make it their own. Strike a blow against the empire!
YES! Nice work Sue.
Remember, ROY G. BIV for a scientifically accurate rainbow Herbert. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. We can do better next time! No worries!
Nice use of charcoal outlines!
Take handfuls of glitter and pass the bottle around so everybody gets some! Thanks Gertrude!
Well I think our job here is done...
Let's head back to home-base and get a snack. HAM and Ice Orange Juice!

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
