Chalk the Walk takes over the Virginia Beach Boardwalk as hundreds of artists and "wanna-be artists" gather to turn the boardwalk into an impromptu canvas of color!
At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four foot chalk drawings for three blocks along the boardwalk.
This year's theme is "50 Years of Fun in the Sun." Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the City of Virginia Beach (1963-2013), participants will produce drawings that depict the City's rich heritage and prominence as a beach community.
200 competitors will complete chalk drawings to be evaluated by a panel of judges from the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art in Virginia Beach. Judges will score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and creativity. There will be three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth. The Youth division will be for ages 12-16. Children 11 and under will be invited to draw for fun in a separate area. Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded for each division.
There is no fee to participate, but it is recommended that artists bring their own chalk.
