Bring the entire family to the Fun With Chalk Festival this weekend. Madonnari (street painters) from far and wide will demonstrate their skill at re-creating Masterpieces or original works of art using their amazing talent, chalk, and love of art! In addition to some breathtaking chalk art, you can purchase a small square of asphalt for your family or child to create your own masterpiece. Bring cash to purchase the pastel chalks and space. Remember your camera for the memories and baby wipes for the chalky fingers afterward.
This year, Fun with Chalk will also be partnering with the "Arts Alive" Celebration. Attendees will see amazing entertainment, hear beautiful music, participate in the renowned FunWithChalk Workshops, and see actual art "studios" with fine artists demonstrating their talent and creativity in various media. Don't miss the amazing performances of juggling great Izzi Tooinsky, and the incredible on-stage performances by Maestro Javier Palomar, creating a magical art moment never to be forgotten!!
Parking is plentiful, but you may need to walk a ways, so take this into account when planning with little ones. If your children are going to participate in the art projects available, make sure to dress them in play clothes that can be stained. Be sure to bring water and sunscreen, too. It can get hot out on the asphalt in the middle of the day. There are plenty of clean bathrooms available and a playground just around the corner from the festival. Food will be available for purchase.
Since 1999, almost 200,000 visitors from near and far have experienced the wonder and joy of this 400 year old performance art - incredible demonstrations of the heart, mind and creative spirit.
|Bring some some cash for food and for chalk so your little ones can make a chalk drawing of their own.|
