Chalk art is an ephemeral form of art. Ephemeral is a word originating from the Greek word Ephemeros, which means "Lasting only one day". Many believe that part of the beauty of chalk art is the impermanence of it. Chalk artists often use pastels to create vivid drawings and 3D images on streets and sidewalks. The surfaces they work on are usually asphalt or concrete, but sometimes can include bricks, pavers, and smooth stone.
