Welcome to the chalk-athon

Natasha Absher and Summerlynn Nugen, 12, created a fanciful chalk art welcome sign at Beth Batchelor's studio last Saturday during the weekend-long Open Studio tour.

Batchelor had several artists working at her studio in Alamo, a children's drawing table and a chalk-athon outside, with students from Darlene Feyler: Dar's Young Picassos with the Contra Costa Academy of Fine Art.

Inside, Batchelor, who specializes in portraits of people and animals, did a pastel of Halona Palmer, 14. The annual event, sponsored by the Alamo Danville Artists' Society, included 25 sites for visitors to see artists at work.
