Beautiful Saturday highlights 20th Chalkwalk, more

Saturday, crowds head to the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center for the 20th Annual Jasper Chalkwalk and Redevelop Old Jasper Action Coalition celebration.

Here are a few photos of the day.

Gracie Mundy focused intently as she attempted to use her left hand to draw flowers in one of the craft activity rooms set up during the Jasper Chalkwalk. A cast hampered her ability to use her primary hand. Photos by Matthew Crane.
Zuri Miller, 6, of Jasper, admired her facepaint after Elizabeth Wertman finished. Zuri asked for a ladybug to be added to the wearable art since she found one the day before and decided they were one of her favorite types of bugs.
Ronan Bressette, 6, of Jasper, worked on tie-dying his shirt. The tie-dye booth at the Chalkwalk is an annual staple as the shirts are monotone, and everyone is given an opportunity to add their own style to them.
Josephine Marx, 6, of Jasper, took part in a concert performed by Strings, Inc. during the Chalkwalk Saturday.
Jasper Officer Dave Berger and Dubois County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Hannah Merter completed a chalk outline of Dawson Scherle, 5, of Ireland. The Jasper Police Department and Dubois County Sheriff’s Office had booths at the Chalkwalk and added their own creative touch to the sidewalk.
Jasper Police Chief Nathan Schmitt added the finishing touches to the street chalk art piece.
ROJAC held tours of the Alexander Schoolhouse. The bell rang fairly regularly as visitors learned about early education in the county with volunteer Lisa Gehlhausen.
Lex Neal hopped and skipped through a hopscotch chalk piece in front of the Jasper Library.
Lily Gunselman, 9, of Jasper, was reflected in the glass entry to the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center Atrium as she worked on a character, Lucky Slime, from the video game “Slime Ranger”.
Layla Krieger, 9, completed a chalk masterpiece of by combining two of her favorite dragons from the “Wings of Fire” series of books by Tui T. Sutherland. She is on book seven in the series of 16 books.
Sisters Sarah Kluemper (left) and Lindsey Schepers helped their three-year-olds, Archer Kluember and Sloane Schepers, work with scissors to create a fun snail craft. Archer was enjoying his first experience with scissors more than the craft, while Sloane had decided she was creating a cat and then, once it was done, called it a cow.
Brother and sister, Asher Lovelace, 7, and Jaydalynn, 5, watched as Aaron the Balloon Guy demonstrated Asher’s completed balloon bow and arrow.
Jason Emmons of Bear Hollow Wood Carvers completed a piece for ROJAC as part of the demonstrations being hosted by the community organization celebrating its 20th anniversary.
