There are no rules – just have some fun, and channel your inner Earth Day artist. Sidewalk chalk only. No spray paint, oil or acrylic paint please. Be sure to take a photo and post it on Facebook, Instagram or whatever platform you use. And send your photos to us too at GBCTA.firstname.lastname@example.org or post on facebook.com/GBCTA.
Please follow social distancing guidelines. Keep 6 feet away from non-family members and wear a mask. Watch for bicycles and runners while you are drawing as you may see them before they see you.
