Chalk Competition

Artists are invited to create their best chalk artwork during the Idaho Statesman Chalk Art Festival on Saturday, July 4, 2015. Participants will be assigned a square in which to create a unique work of art on the sidewalk in Ann Morrison Park. Ages 12 and older must be registered to participate in the Festival.  Chalk Land is an area for children 11 and younger  to create chalk art and no registration is required.




An assortment of sidewalk chalk, quality artists pastels and grey scale chalk will be provided when you check in at the Festival. However, if you are using a predominant color in your design, you may want to purchase additional chalk of that color before the Festival.

Chalk must be water-based. No acrylic paints, liquid pastels, hard pastels, etc., are acceptable. No tempura base paint may be used.


Squares are 6-feet by 6-feet in dimension.

All registrants must identify their age as youth, ages 12-17, or adult, 18 and older. This is necessary for identifying release forms and prizes.
