The skies were clear blue and the sun was friendly Saturday for the 14th Annual Oberlin Chalk Walk. Hundreds of hands helped add splashes of color to sidewalks throughout the city’s downtown area. We found master artists and toddlers creating amazing works of art right next to each other.

The family that chalks together walks together — Mike, Candace, Alex, Luke, and Mia Traster colored a big patch of sidewalk on South Main Street with a rainbow, enderman, duck, Godzilla, and Mothra.
Nyla Campbell is really into her work! She’s got a little smudge on her nose after putting a lot of effort into drawing a snowman.
