What is chalk art?
The art of street painting has been around since the 16th century. Artists create beautiful images using the pavement as their canvas and pastel chalks as their medium. There are currently many prestigious festivals in Europe and America that celebrate this traditional art form. A street painting festival is a combination of performance art and public art. Spectators can experience the actual creation process, interact with the artist, and even participate by creating their own work of art. As an artist, you will be able to work on a large scale with pastel chalks that are extremely user-friendly in an inspiring environment while you interact socially and enjoy live entertainment. Come join us for a wonderful experience!
Is there a charge?
Thanks to their sponsors they are able to provide this community event free of charge and to give all aspiring artists a 12 piece box of pastel chalks.
Do I need to pre-register?
Pre-registration is not necessary unless you would like to chalk a space bigger than 4 feet by 4 feet.
Can I use my own chalk?
You are welcome to use your own chalk as long as it is water based. Oil based pastels are not allowed.
