The Georgia Chalk Artists Guild was well represented at the 2015 Sarasota International Chalk Festival! Participating members included Katie, Jessi, Zach and Dianne. Katie arrived a few days early to help with the Guinness World Record painting. The festival lasts 3 days, giving the artists around 20 hours to complete their large pieces.
