Chalk art 'flies'

Artist Mark Wagner spent several days at Hearst Elementary School recently helping students create the largest chalk pavement art in Pleasanton. The children made individual drawings that became part of a huge monarch butterfly, which spread its wings across the courtyard.

Wagner is a 2010 Guinness Book World Record holder for the largest chalk pavement picture ever created. He worked with each class over the three-day project, assisting the students in developing their own artistic techniques.
