- Before you hit the pavement, search for some pictures and phrases for inspiration.
- Make sure you keep safe by:
- Letting your parents know that you will be on the driveway.
- If you have a gate, making sure it is closed, and trying not to work too close to the fence line or behind any parked cars – it is important that you can be seen by anyone using the driveway.
- Getting permission from your neighbours if you have a shared driveway.
If you think your driveway is a risky place to chalk, consider the footpath or other safe, paved areas.
- Get chalking and have fun!
- Make sure you snap a picture of your work and share it in the link above.
- Using bright colours and bold lines are great ways to get your work to stand out.
- Check the weather forecast – if you want your chalk to last as long as possible, make sure there is no rain coming. The rain will wash away your work.
- Want to spread the word to everyone? Go public! If you do want to chalk in a public place, such as an outdoor mall or park, make sure you get permission from mall management or your local council before you begin.
