If you would like to spend a day full of art and creativity, head on down to downtown San Antonio on October 10, 2015 from 10am till 4pm for Chalk It Up’s annual festival. San Antonio’s best artists, fun art organizations, and local art students will be down there chalking up Houston Street. There will be hands on activities for people of all ages. You will be able to join the creation of the Downtown Mural. Art Pace will be the sponsoring program with Ernesto Olivo, local artist and art educator, as Associate Educator.
What inspires these artists to do exciting works of art? What drives their passion to create works of art that become our history? Chalk It Up is the time to let your artistic passion take over you and fill the streets with creativity. It will be a family friendly event that every member can enjoy.
International artist Cally Spooners will be attending from London, also Marie Lorenz from New York, and Larry Bamburg from Brooklyn, New York. They will be the new artist residents. They will be there having an open discussion starting at 6:30pm.
Garner Middle School’s first ten people to sign up for Chalk It Up through Art Club will be attending this event to create their original idea. They will go downtown to create their inspiration of art.
There will be merriments like music and food booths. It will be a time to bring friends, and family together. There will be free admission because they care about teaching people about art, and igniting artistic passion. A festival that will bring art and people together, will you be a part of it?
