Hi Gang,
I know this is a magic site but some of you are multi-skilled and also do chalk art. If this describes you check out Chalked & Amazed! podcast.

Chalked & Amazed is the only "chalk radio" show on the internet. This interview program features some of the most well-known professionals in our field as well as those serious enthusiasts who present chalk art on a regular basis.

Have you ever wondered how other chalkers first discovered this unique style of ministry? Or how their career in this field developed and expanded? Perhaps you would like to hear about their most embarrassing moment on stage from yesteryear or what new projects they are developing today. Tune in for all this and more at http://www.ChalkedAndAmazed.com

Best of all, these Internet radio shows are FREE so listen on the site or download each one and begin enjoying them today. You will be Chalked & Amazed!

Hi Gang,

In addition to Chalked and Amazed - the podcast for chalk artists - I have also put up a companion site called Golden Chalk Classics. This site deals with the history and literature of chalk art and chalk talks.

For those interested in studying information on this topic, here is the link:

Best,

I know this is an older post, but thanks for providing these links! I don't personally do chalk drawing, but I have seen chalk artists in church settings--utilizing various techniques (black light, water mist, etc.) and it TRULY IS AN ART FORM!!!!

Curious. Has it suffered with the advent of the marker board? And, I'm also curious--and being serious--are there any budding "Marker Board" artists exploring the potential of that medium as a "canvas" for artistic creativity?

Hey, thanks for the interest,

I don't think chalk art has suffered decline due to the marker board. Although I would say that marker boards have largely replaced paper for presenting lightning cartoon stunts ala Ed Harris. This kind of chalk talk was very popular during vaudeville and through the 1950s.

Currently, I know of some who have used the Axtell Magic Board for dashing off a couple of trick cartoons and then segue into a Talking Board routine using the same board. This is about the extent of marker board artists that I know of.

I would also say that church-style chalk art (colored chalk landscapes/scenes with black light effects) HAS suffered decline since its apex in the 1950s and 60s. The jury is still out as to why this is. Many hours of discussion have been spent in analyzing the reasons why.

But, some of us are working hard at preserving chalk art and trying to turn the decline around. In fact, just TODAY I released a brand new forum for chalk artists called The Chalk Loft at http://thechalkloft.heavenforum.com/

There are 22 topics under 5 categories and it is structured somewhat in look & feel to the Café. There is a topic there called "Kissing Cousins of Chalk" that includes the subject of white board marker talks. No one has posted there yet so come on over and leave your input!

Best regards,
Kerry

This is an old thread. Is anything currently being done? Is there a way to "log on" to the site you originated?

Hi John,

Yes, a lot is being done to encourage the growth of chalk art. You are able to log on and post on The Chalk Loft after you register - but you can also read any of the posts without being a member: http://thechalkloft.heavenforum.org/
