City of Carrollton presents Chalk Art Festival
The City of Carrollton will present its inaugural Chalk-Art-Festival. The event will feature live music from New Horizon Band, food, a bounce house for the kids, a few artisans displaying their crafts, and a free area for young aspiring chalk-artists-to-be.
There is no fee to compete as an artist. First and second-place prizes will be awarded in three categories: amateur, student, and professional. Artists (ages 8+) and students (high school juniors, seniors, and college students) who have not sold their artwork may enter as amateurs and will have a choice of chalking either an area 2-by-2 feet or 4-by-4 feet; artists (ages 13+) who have sold their artwork must enter as a professional and will have a choice between chalking an area 4-by-4 feet or 6-by-6 feet.
Each competitor will begin with the same amount of chalk and may swap out for more colors as needed, or artists may bring their own solid form chalk pastels. No liquid or oil pastels, tempera paint, acrylic paint, or fixative of any kind is allowed. Preregistration is highly recommended as space is limited.
