Incredible Japanese chalkboard art created by schoolchildren on their breaks

Do you remember your lunch breaks at school? A chance to run around the playground and catch up with friends? In Japan, students tend to draw beautiful artworks on their chalkboards between classes. And to celebrate this fantastic culture, Japanese chalkboard manufacturer Nichigaku recently hosted a chalkboard art contest to find some of the best chalkboard art in Japan.

As you can imagine, this type of art tends to focus on those things that students hold dearest to their hearts – anything from their favourite TV shows or Anime characters to sports and pop culture. Here are just a few submissions to demonstrate the level of talent that took part in the competition, which attracted 50 submissions from around 250 students.
