Fence Chalk Art
Chalking murals, scenes, or small pictures on fences can be relaxing for the artist and entertaining for the audience. Neighbors, adults and kids, really enjoy watching them be created and enjoy the final product. What you need is a fence, chalk, time, nice weather and some inspiration. The longer the period of nice weather the longer passerby’s can enjoy the mural.
The murals can be themed such as for a holiday or current event, inspirational quotes, or interactive for picture ops.
First figure out the concept and draw a simple sketch on paper to get the lay out organized. Then grab the chalk colors needed and start drawing! Listening to music and dancing while chalking on the fence also seems to add to creativity and having more fun!
The end product will give you a sense of accomplishment whether it turns out as expected or not. I agree with Bob Ross…”We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents.”
I started chalking fence murals in April 2020 for the neighborhood to enjoy during strange times and have continued to chalk the fence whenever weather, time, and inspiration permit. More recently I have stumbled upon a huge chalking community from beginner to expert artists. Everyone is welcome and there are contests, chalk the blocks, and festivals for chalking all over the world. It’s been a growing process and it is exciting to try new techniques.

To blend colors, overlap a good layer of chalk with the colors you want to blend. Then, use your fingertips to rub them together as lightly or firmly as you like until you achieve the blend you want. Wearing gloves may be ideal depending on your canvas. You do not want splinters! Some people wear latex gloves. I personally wear gardening gloves when I want to blend.
