La Jolla High School juniors Stephanie Foster and Kaitlin Wheeler completed an 8-by-8-foot Italian mask made of chalk for the 2013 Gesso Italiano, Oct. 12-13, in Little Italy. Working for more than eight hours, the duo chalked on the pavement next to 50 other chalk artists — all creating beautiful Italian-themed masterpieces on Date Street. Kylee Hum and Madeline Gates, members of the Splatter Art Club (SAC) at La Jolla High, assisted. SAC focuses on improving students’ artistic skills by having them take part in community service projects.
