CHICO, Calif. -- Violet Fuller and her art class at Chico Junior High were scheduled to have what they call a chalk walk.

Students were going to line-up chalk drawings for their school to see.

Since the coronavirus forced schools to shutdown, Fuller decided to draw her own chalk-walk right outside her home.

"It was actually my mom's idea. She said 'why don't you do some little chalk drawings on the sidewalk to brighten peoples day as they walk by' and so I did Weenie the Pooh first," said Fuller.

After drawing Pooh Bear, Fuller went on to draw 45 other chalk drawings, and still counting.

She hopes that while social distancing and satying at home for a while doesn't discourage others from still playing outside under safe conditions.

Violet thinks, "...it's definitely important. Just because we're in quarantine doesn't mean we can't go outside. You just have to be careful, and social distancing is very important and you have to make sure you're careful, but you still can have fun outside and do some activites."

Fuller's 13th birthday is this Wednesday so Action News Now would like to wish Violet an early Happy Birthday. Keep up the positivity and fun ways to stay active!

If you'd like to see Violet's hard work, the sidewalk she's drawn on is located on Skymountain Circle just off of Forest Avenue in Chico.
