Chalk the Walk ARTsplosion

Chalk the Walk takes over the Virginia Beach Boardwalk on July 12, 2014 from 10:00am-5:00pm as hundreds of artists and “wanna-be artists” gather to turn the boardwalk into an impromptu canvas of color!  Artist registration will be on the boardwalk at 17th Street, and art will be displayed for two blocks between 17th and 15th Streets.

At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four foot chalk drawings for three blocks along the boardwalk.

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.  Winners will be announced at 4:30pm at the registration tent.  The hours for the Chalk the Walk are 10:00am-5:00pm.  All participants must register by 1:00pm to qualify for the competition.  All drawings must be completed by 3:30pm to be eligible for prizes.

Advance registration for Chalk the Walk is not required.  There is no fee to participate, but it is recommended that artists bring their own chalk.
