Sidewalk Children’s Art by James & Lucas, The Young Artists

Jul 5, 2011
Dashing through the crowds on Birkshire Drive just meters away from Optimist Park playground I walked over something that caught my eye. I stopped for a split second. Nah, let me take care of Canada Day fireworks first. I made a mental note to come back.

Sidewalk Art Part 1 - Home

Today I was back. It almost took us an hour to get to this spot, but it was all worth venturing out despite the hot weather. The clouds and wind cooperated few times giving us shade and breeze we needed on our little journey. Matthew had fun at the playground and I found something beautiful. I am a big fan of children’s art, and that is what I stumbled at last week.

Sidewalk Art Part 3 - Young Artists

I could only make out two names James and Lucas. I have a feeling that there might have been third child and of course parent involved and enjoying doing the same. We had a thunderstorm on Saturday of that weekend, and heavy rain – the art is still there. They were probably using some type of acrylic paints. I hope the art will stay for a bit more time.

Sidewalk Art Part 4 - A Bit Adult Touch

Children have different way to express themselves through art. Their minds are filled with many ideas at the same time. Their little hands have way of taking all the colors and make their creation flow in unity. They express happiness and freedom.

This is my second inspirational artwork this summer. First one was the picnic tables in the Town Park artistically painted by 67 students across Aurora. First time I saw them in front of the Town Hall when I dropped off my letter to the Accessibility Advisory and then when I was visiting the Farmers Market at the Town Park.

I am living in Aurora and this is my photo journal blog. A picture says 1000 words - but not always, so I write. You don't have to travel 1000 miles to find a treasure - all I have to do is zoom through my lens and I will find it for you here in Aurora.
