Drawing on Earth is a new 501(c)3 Nonprofit That Inspires Art and Creativity
Drawing on Earth is a new 501(c)3 nonprofit that inspires art and creativity in youth and communities around the world. Their first event set a Guinness World Record for the largest street painting (also know as pavement art and chalk drawing). The world record now is 90,000 sq. ft. (300 x 300 ft., almost 2 football fields, or 8,361 m2), it was created by 6,000 people, most of them were elementary school kids of Alameda California USA. It took them 2 weeks and at the end a satellite took a photograph of the artwork from 423 miles up in space. Their current project is a global illustrated story.
Mark Wagner is the visionary artist and founder of Drawing on Earth. Wagner is a professional artist who works in the film industry as a concept artist, he worked on the upcoming Disney film, John Carter. Wagner started chalk drawing in 1994 and had been creating community chalk drawing with all the children at his kid’s elementary school. The school district has NO art teachers in the elementary schools. Wagner had a vision of creating the world’s largest chalk drawing to bring awareness to the Arts and the lack there of, and to give the kids a big enough creative experience that they would remember the rest of their lives.
