Pastel Presentations - Art & Music with Black light effects!
My name is Dee Ruckert and I am an artist available for the performance art called “Chalk Talks”.  My medium is pastels, some of which are fluorescent.  I draw on a special black-light easel, with a background of inspirational music.  At the end of the drawing, the light bar above the drawing creates a change in the mood of the pastel, some parts glowing in the dark.  The picture is created in a 20-30 minute time span, and you keep the 27” x 40” pastel.  Affordable frames are available for onsite completion.  You may display the artwork for your church, school or meeting place, or raffle the picture off and raise money for your organization. Scroll down to see a few samples of my work.
My themes range from both the religious to the and can be perfectly suited to such as a patriotic holiday or a father/son banquet.  I have performed for children as young as kindergarten and adults in nursing homes.  All ages are enthralled to see the story-telling picture evolve in front of their eyes.  And the large size format makes this art suitable for both large and small groups.  
Please call me now to book for your events.  As a retired art teacher, I am available days, evenings, and weekends.  My rates are reasonable and I am willing to travel between Beaver, Butler, Lawrence, Allegheny, and
Westmoreland Counties (Western PA) to accommodate your events.  
Consider “Chalk Talks” for school assemblies, church functions, nursing home entertainment, retreats, motivational and recreational events.
I can create a pastel to suit your needs!
