National artist teaching street painting in Moorhead

Posted: Updated:

"We have been creating since the day we were here"

Some came to see.

"Chalk art on driveways"

And some call it.

"A way to express yourself."

And some came to.

"Play with chalk on the sidewalk."

How can something that seems so simple teach a child so much?

"Shawn is a wonderful teacher"

Shawn McCann is a local artist.

"Growing up in Wahpeton, I love the area, I love North Dakota"

Gone National.

"I was in Germany last month"

He illustrates children's books, does street art, and he enjoys...

"trying to inspire ya know the next generation"

That's why he is holding this workshop.

"you will get kids that will sit on the edges and watch you work, which is a blast"

Because he wants kids to soak it all in.

"how to use the eraser to blend it all in, and how to use perspective and 3D"

Some might call it just playing with chalk on the sidewalk.

"you can use blues if you are sad, reds if you are mad, yellows if you are happy. "

But Shawn is teaching children valuable lessons.

"he answers all the right questions that kids might ask, but might not feel comfortable asking"

"it's not too often you get to see an artist work."

Here is a link to street paint with Shawn: http://www.therourke.org/#!sidewalk-chalk-festival

    FAA regulations keep UND unmanned aircraft grounded

     UND has one of only a handful of four-year unmanned aircraft pilot programs in the country, but instructors say student tuition means the FAA would consider flights commercial, which is prohibited.
