Some of the planned activities at ColorPalooza:

Chalk This Way – Put your chalk artistic skills on display for everyone to see.

It will include amateur and professional chalk art as well as a chalk art scholarship contest. For more information on the scholarship contest visit www.chalkthisway.org.

DIY Tie-Dye Station – Admit it, you’d wear tie-dye more often if you could tell people you created the design. Here’s your chance. Buckets of water and colorful dye will be provided. Visitors can buy a plain white t-shirt, pick out what colors they want and create their own design with the help of event staff.

Found-Object Art Corporate Challenge – Local businesses will get to show off the creativity of their employees in this competition. Employees will design artistic masterpieces using “trash” items commonly found in their workplace. Maybe it’s a coat hanger or a light bulb or an old soda case that sets the piece apart. Awards will be presented for a Juried Winner and a People’s Choice Winner. Companies interested in taking part in this competition can call 972.219.8446 for the full contest rules.

Plein Aire Art Stations – Watch in amazement as skilled artists ply their craft right before your eyes. Open air artists will be stationed at various locations around the festival so visitors can watch a painting from start to finish. Artists will rotate at each station throughout the festival.

Hands-On Art for Kids - Children wanting to show off their creative skills will be right at home at this event. They’ll get their chances to impress visitors with their own coloring, painting and clay skills. Out of the minds of kids come some of the most vibrant and eye-catching pieces of work.

Art Demonstration Center – This area will showcase artists of all mediums who will show how they create thought-provoking expressions of art. Creativity is not limited to just paintings. Watch as skilled craftspeople create colorful ceramics and other works of art.
