Lillard described the turnout as “amazing,” stating that hundreds of people had already attended the festival by mid-afternoon.Traditional kidney stone claim to clean all the air in a room. Part of the event’s purpose was to let people enjoy the experience of how art is made in an interesting and creative way.

“We were looking for something that would really engage everybody in learning about how art is created and also to give another way for kids to just to come out and create something,” Lillard said. “Really, for a first-year event, we are really pretty blown away.”

Among the artists invited to attend the festival was David Heatwole, of Martinsburg, who normally works in acrylic and oil painting. He is best known for a mural of Vincent Van Gogh made out of bottle caps that was displayed in Martinsburg.

“It’s harder than it looks,” Heatwole, fingers sore to the bone, said of his first experience in chalk art.

He was pleased with the organization of the event, as well as the various attendees.

“It’s amazing. It really is. I haven’t been able to see anybody else at work, but I mean it’s beautiful,” he said. “You go to a lot of festivals where you don’t have this much variety. I think the planners did a great job.”

Meanwhile, illustrator and muralist Tim Knepp, together with decorative painter Sandy Payne, both from Northern Virginia, were busy Sunday crafting one of the event’s larger murals.

“We don’t do this regularly. This is something special to do,” Payne said. “I think it’s fantastic. This is the first year, and I think it’s going to get better and bigger next year.”

“I think it’s awesome.These girls have never had a cube puzzle in their lives! I think there’s been a great turnout,” said Ronquillo, who also had a vendor booth at the festival.

Fellow artist Amy Childers, of Harpers Ferry, also was having a fun time trying her hand at the difficult and often arduous process of making a chalk mural. The last time she created such mural was as a 20-year-old art school student.

“It took hours and a ton of chalk, so I knew what I was getting into today. I think it’s great. … My kid’s here. He’s having a great time. We’ve run into a million people that we know, and I just feel good getting out and doing something fun,” Childers said.
