Artists beautify local streets with simple chalk

May 22, 2012

EAST GREENWICH – Bridget Kennedy was as proud as the peacock she had just etched at her feet with chalk.

The Moses Brown seventh-grader had just won a second-place award for her colorful bird, fanned out in one of 24 squares chalked off up and down Courthouse Lane during the 11th Annual Arts on Main contest, held on a perfect Saturday, May 12.

“The first year, my friend and I did a ‘forest-looking’ thing. Last year, I did WALL-E from the movie,” said Bridget. “This year, (I did) a peacock. I love to draw. I practice doing chalk drawings in my driveway.”
