It’s hard to believe that the Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival has been taking place for over 25 years. Since 1991 the Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival has grown to be one of the most anticipated and fun events in Washington County. Anyone can take part in the fun, no matter what their artistic skills might be. It is great to see the creative drawings taking shape throughout the day and to stroll the downtown blocks after the event to see the wonderful artwork.
The cost is $7 for Valley Art Members, $12 for non-members, and includes a tray of brilliant colorful chalk and a square of downtown Forest Grove sidewalk for the day. There is no charge to observe!
PARTIALLY FUNDED BY A GRANT FROM THE COMMUNITY ENHANCEMENT PROJECT: PROCEEDS FROM THE FESTIVAL HELP FUND SCHOLARSHIPS FOR FOREST GROVE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WILL BE CONTINUING WITH THEIR ART STUDIES IN COLLEGE, AND VALLEY ART ASSOCIATION CHILDREN’S ART CLASSES.
FEATURED ARTISTS for 2017 will be announced later.
The festival is held rain or shine so come prepared for the weather. There will be ongoing entertainment all day long, suitable for all ages. Bring your imagination along with your knee pads, rulers, blending brushes, etc. and enjoy the day alongside your fellow artists. The event is open to all. There is no judging, only admiration.
SPONSORS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED. THANKS!
