— On May 25, the Lenape Valley students in Mrs. Carnegie’s Art for the School and Beyond classes participated in the annual street painting art activity. Street painting is when artists create works of art using pastels and chalk in public places like squares, sidewalks, etc. This type of art dates back to the 16th century. The students in Mrs. Carnegie’s art classes worked in groups producing original chalk artworks of their own in parking spaces located in the student lot of the high school. The focus of this activity was to teach members of the LVR community about street painting/chalk art. LVR staff members and students came out to the parking lot to view the street paintings in progress throughout the day. By viewing Mrs. Carnegie’s art students working on their projects, the LVR community discovered the process that artists go through to generate this type of art, as well as the subject matter of these works which can be reproductions of famous artworks or anamorphic (3D) images.

"I truly appreciate the Lenape Valley administration supporting this art activity," Carnegie said. “With this support, I am able to engage myer students in an art activity that the students will remember forever.”

At the end of the day, there were ten impressive street paintings. Mrs. Carnegie said that she “loves this art activity because it gives my students an opportunity to work collaboratively on producing large scale artworks that the entire LVR community enjoys and appreciates."
