ArtFest chalks the town

'Its for the kids'

Newton resident David LeFevers chalks his creation on the Court Square as 3-year-old Isabella Decoursey admires his handiwork.
"I never compete," said LeFever, who participates in Newton Merchant Group's annual ArtFest "Its for the kids. I am here to try to encourage them."
Some of those "kids" were among competitors in the event. Sixteen-year-olds Nicole Bender and Ricky Sigmon collaborated to create a double-tile chalkwork. Bender said her art teacher, Bunker Hill High's Sharon Bowman encouraged her to participate. The pair's Halloween-themed image won the pair a second place award.
Sidewalk artwork will be on display around the downtown Newton's Court Square until the next rain.
