On Thursday, in preparation for the 40th annual Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival, the classes from Carroll Catholic made their way downtown to work their magic with chalk on the sidewalks, creating lovely pictures that downtown visitors will be able to enjoy all weekend long.

The kids walked from their school to the square, accompanied by their teachers. Each class had a designated spot where they spent the morning drawing and coloring their art.

For the kids as well as the teachers, it was an activity that was fun and resulted in lovely pictures that will be enjoyed by many throughout the weekend.

During the day, other artists joined in the fun and creativity, and by evening the sidewalks around the downtown square featured many lovely masterpieces.
