When it comes to EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, traditional paintings in frames are not the only thing that Guests will be able to enjoy during their day. There are also a number of food booths to celebrate the culinary arts, as well as fun and stunning performances throughout the day to celebrate the performing arts. There is also another form of art that one may not typically associate with an art festival — chalk art.

When many people think of chalk art, they typically think of young kids sitting out in their driveway or on the sidewalk drawing rainbows, green grass, and big yellow suns. However, Disney has taken chalk art to a whole new level, and it is breathtaking. Disney recently shared a video on its Instagram of one of its incredibly talented chalk artists bringing to life Joe Gardner from Disney’s Soul (2o20).
