Bee Happy!

The first Friday in September has become a traditional day for me to be chalking in Carpinteria! After having my Coloring Book Series highlighted at the former Curious Cup Bookstore there, this delightful town has embraced my heART! Readers of this blog will remember my previous art trips to “Carp” like the time I chalked Nekea Blagoev of Get Smashed Art‘s Ripcurl design HERE! OR the time I chalked a Carpinteria loving mermaid seen HERE! So much FUN to be under the sun and down on the street. As we have continually informed you here from AutismHWY… Chalk Art is addicting in a very colorful, peaceful and loving way!

 

We invite every city to free express within their communities. You should all try it sometime! Next weekend I will be chalking up a design created by MaryEllen Szper of Flying Frog.com at the fabulous Ventura Harbor. MaryEllen is an amazing artist, so wish me luck!

Here is my photo blog from Carpinteria’s “Chalk the Walk 2016″ My rendition of the photo I took, of a sunflower I grew! FUN :

Now, spend 15 minutes to absorb this amazing talk filled with thought provoking concepts which support FUN…in order to truly BEE HAPPY! xo …

AutismHWY Travels to ANCA Naturally Autistic: Chalk It For Autism 2016!

What an exciting initiative taking place at this year’s 7th ANCA WORLD Autism Festival Âû!
I am so pleased to announce that the AutismHWY.com / Chalk Festival and myself, will be coloring perceptions regarding Autism, at this amazing international gathering! I am so honored and excited to be returning to the Naturally Autistic People Awards in Vancouver Canada this fall as a …NOMINEE! My trip in 2011 as a sponsor partner was so inspiring and life changing. It will be fantastic to be back in this expansive vortex of complete acceptance and connection for AUTISTIC PEOPLE AND THEIR SUPPORTERS!
AWAF LOGO July 2016I am thrilled and so proud to be conducting an interactive Chalk Art Workshop. A workshop about this fantastic, OLD & NEW artistic medium as a part of this year’s spectacular global event. WOW!
Chalk and Street Art really do bring people back to their ancestrial roots. Our uniquely human instinctual need …to self express through creativity. Heiroglyphics in the 21st century if you will.  The experience will be exhilarating. I guarantee. As an artist working in the streets, sign painting I learned the power of colorful imagery inserted into everyday life, at a very young age.  I see how imagery markets everything to the world. I have since come to use this skill while engaging with the general public in realistic conversations about Autism. A very grounded way to connect on very deep levels!

It has been such a fantastic experience engaging with random people seemingly ‘not involved with Autism’ and learning through further discussion… that the majority in fact  are. We are indeed all connected, heARTfully.
At this years ANCA World Autism Festival I will share the story of how we built the AutismHWY.com Chalk Festival. How we came to a partnership with my fabulous hometown of Covina California. How everyone can experience the joys that ‘Street Art’ brings to people participating and spectating, something great for every community. We will see how the process emerges. I will share instruction, pointers and tips, showing the work from our past events and some of my special Autism chalkings from other festivals.

Autistic pride

 

 

 

 

 

 

Participants of the workshop will have the chance to chalk designs on square paper adhered to the table (simulating the chalk square model.) We will have imagery to prompt ART or encourage participants to work from their hearts and see what unexpected messages emerge!
BOOMWe will also be doing an inclusive rainbow color smudging which will activate us experientially. The weaving of the color scheme signifies that we all are made up of many characteristics that shift and blend throughout a lifetime! Using your fingers to literally blur your lines is a powerful feeling! It catapults us into the realization that we are all merging our similarities and/or our differing ‘ways of being’…into a NEW and more accepting way for the future.
A colorful, diverse and more intuitive way of communicating who we are. I am looking forward to authentically meeting and seeing you ALL this fall!
