Lakeside Arts Foundation partners with the City of Lewisville to host Chalk This Way at ColorPalooza, a Celebration of Spring, on April 17, 20201 outside Lewisville MCL Grand and City Hall area, from 10 AM to 7 PM. This event will feature a professional chalk artist exhibit, Amateur Art Showcase, Scholarship Contest for high school Seniors, and a Children’s Gallery, in addition to the traditional festival offerings of art vendors, food & drink vendors, strolling circus performers, musical entertainment and more.
Artists of all ages are encouraged to participate in the Amateur Art Showcase. For a fee of $15 day of event or $12 pre-registration discount, each artist (or group of 4 or fewer) will be provided high-quality artist-grade pastels and a designated 6 x 6’ square area to work.
Younger children may participate in the free Children’s Gallery where they will receive child-safe chalk and a 2 x 2’ square for their art.
Guests to the festival will be able to vote on their favorite work of Amateur Art for the People’s Choice award, until 3 PM, when the art supply tent will close. Guests will be able to view and photograph the art until closing time, at 5 PM. Artists are asked to make sure that the work is appropriate for family viewing at a community event.
