ChalkXChange is a neighborhood creative commons. Like a favorite corner store, Chalk is nearby and sometimes serves pie. Rather than groceries, we stock ideas, stories, and activities. Getting together as neighbors to imagine, learn, teach, and create is the foundation for creative neighborhoods; and in turn, creative cities. At ChalkXChange, we draw on our collective creative arts and invite the public to participate in events, workshops, and projects. Meet you at the chalkboard…



Class dates and times vary. Check Scout for the latest class announcements.
