Those 3D chalk drawings you see on sidewalks, streets, and buildings all around the world are simply amazing. To be great, art doesn't have to fit the status quo. It's not always all about oils, pastels, clay, or stone. True artists can create beauty and inspire the imagination in any medium – even with simple chalk.
