There is a children alley where the kids can enjoy painting on the street.

We watch as the artists paint on the street.  The paintings are very beautiful!!

It must be very hard sitting on the street, bending over to paint with little chalks.  t's very hot too.  A lot of the paintings are copies of famous classics.

Some of the artists have serious tools.  This one has a nice set of pastels.

Some are more contemporary.
