Posted: Updated:

Southport Elementary School kids had the opportunity to show their artistic skills with Chalk.

Over four hundred different chalk arts on display, each piece was created by children from 1st through 5th grade. They had just 45 minutes to create a drawing.

Southport Elementary art teacher Kelly Halley stresses the importance of art.

"Art is important for everyone because it allows all the kids to express them selves through creativity and to show what art means to them and they can express them self in ways the we don't see normal in every day life, says Halley.

Halley went on to say art is also a way for young pupils to express themselves.
