Chalk It Up with us!
Artpace’s 9th Annual Chalk It Up festival takes place on downtown Houston Street on Saturday, October 13, 2012. We’ve already selected our Showcase and Feature chalk artists for the event to wow you with their original murals, and we’ve been busy prepping innovative creative projects with our Associate Educators for our Kidzones.
But Team Works artists also play a significant role in the event by creating an original design in chalk, rendered directly on a sidewalk “canvas” along Houston Street—and registration is still open. Team Works artists can be educators, students, and members of cultural and community organizations. The Team Works Registration Form is available online. Details and contact information are included on the document. The registration deadline is 5pm on Friday, September 14, 2012. (You will receive notice of your acceptance as a Team Works team by Wednesday, September 19.)
Chalk It Up is a free, family-friendly event that promotes the importance of art education and proudly exhibits San Antonio’s creative vivacity by providing hands-on activities led by professional art educators, as well as interactions with contemporary artists. Artpace remains passionate about giving people an opportunity to explore their relationship with not only contemporary art, but their hometown community. Chalk It Up 2012 is made possible by presenting sponsor Argo Group.
