The Coral Springs Museum of Art (CSMART) is planning its 3rd Annual Chalk it Up for Art!!, a street painting festival, open to participation from the general public and professional artists. This festival is scheduled for January 26, 2013.
Professional or amateur artists or teams up to four artists will design and draw chalk masterpieces on the sidewalks in front of CSMART. Best of Show will be awarded in seven categories: Elementary School; Middle School; High School; Adults, Families, Professional Artists and People's Choice.
Professional Artist Nzingah Oniwosan will be creating sidewalk artwork during this six hour event!!
CSMART decided to create this event as an avenue to introduce and engage the community to the fine arts using a medium that does not require significant time and monetary investment. It was felt that chalk art was something that the majority of potential participants would be least apprehensive of trying out for the first time.
Chalk it Up for Art is sponsored by the Coral Springs Artist Guild and Friends of the Museum.
