(Belfast) - Waterfall Arts’ is seeking chalk artists of all kinds to turn sidewalks and pavement into art during the third annual Chalk Walk (an All Ages Art Happening), led by Bridget Matros, Youth & Family Outreach Manager. On Saturday, September 21 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM, Waterfall Arts will stage an art takeover of the Belfast Harbor Walk, with artists creating gorgeous chalk drawings throughout Heritage Park in beautiful downtown Belfast. Artists interested in participating can reserve a 4’ x 4’ square on Waterfall Arts’ by registering on their website or by calling their office at 207-338-2222.
Participating in AAAH: Chalk Walk is a unique opportunity to make art, engage with the community, and feel like a rock star. Waterfall Arts will supply chalk, rags, knee pads, and drinking water to all artists. In addition, volunteers from Waterfall Arts’ youth programs will be on hand to assist artists with their needs. Artists of all abilities are invited to sign up--whether you’re a professional or a novice, you’re welcome to reserve a square of sidewalk or pavement. Please note, sidewalk/pavement squares are available on a first come, first served basis and artists must be registered in advance of the Chalk Walk itself.
Waterfall Arts will have plenty of chalk on hand for passersby to add their own designs to the community pathway. Stroll through Heritage Park to check out various large-scale works in progress and come back at the end of the day to see the finished pieces. There will be plenty of fun photo opportunities. In the case of inclement weather, the drawing fun moves over to Waterfall Arts--tons of activities for all ages!
