Every Weekend, Two Art Students Broke Into a Classroom. What They Did Blew My Mind.

Artists want to express themselves freely whenever inspiration strikes them. Two art students from the Columbus College of Arts and Design definitely expressed themselves by sneaking into classrooms late Sunday or Monday evenings and would create incredible chalk art.

They are two anonymous students majoring in Advertising and Graphic Design and they go by the name ‘Dangerdust’. They don’t cheat or steal and the only thing dangerous about them is their talent for creating masterpieces out of chalk because it is incredibly inspiring and beautiful.

Every Sunday or Monday night, anonymous art duo Dangerdust work their magic.

Even if their works of art are temporary and eventually brushed away from the blackboard, they inspire everyone that has the pleasure of seeing them.
