Chalkboard Art is a thing.
Then it became a thing, for Classic Amy Joanne with the popularity of Classic Chalk Art created for our local Art Center’s ‘Chalk & Chew’ Classes. You can read all about Classic Chalk Art and Chalk & Chew (here).
‘Chalk & Chew’ was a thing in Tamaqua for 7 years, the name caught on and classes filled, I was happy to be know as the ‘Chalk & Chew’ instructor.
Leona, the Art Center Director, and I grew an artful friendship. We worked together to keep the Arts growing at the Center, along with many others, those were good times. She also encouraged all Artists to create for and in the Community.
3 years ago in Autumn, during a time when I was figuring out my Artful Journey, (read about the journey and the hiccup (here)), Leona was asked by a local Coffee Shop if she knew of anyone that would create a Menu Chalkboard for their Shop.
Me: ‘Why Yes, Leona, I would be happy too”,
gulp. What did I just agree too, I have never done anything like this before.
And there I was creating a large menu board for ‘Hope & Coffee’.
