August 27, 4pm-8:15pm in the Longmont Public Library Pavillion

CHALKMONT!

Sign up to be a Chalkmont Artist!

On August 27 from 4pm-8pm, more than a dozen community artists will join together to create chalk art throughout Downtown Longmont in front of the library and on Main St.  These artists will turn concrete into a vivid canvas of colorful chalk art. 

WHAT YOU’LL SEE : Creating these amazing works of art requires more than just scribbling on the sidewalk. First, the artist must draw an outline of the original painting in proper proportion using pencil or a charcoal pastel. Then they begin to lay the base of colors. Using a number of colored pastels, the artist layers the chalk, blending the colors to create shadow, contrast and depth. The art may not last long, but that’s sort of the point. Feeling inspired? There will be DIY art stations at the Firehouse Art Center (667 4th Avenue)  and at the Longmont Public Library for artists of all ages to give Chalk art a try! 

Judges will select their favorite works of art in our juried art award. Artwork is judged based on composition, creativity, ability with medium, and originality. The People’s Choice winner will be selected based on likes on the ArtWalk Longmont Facebook. Winners will be announced at the LDDA Summer Concert on Friday, August 27th.  The two winners will receive a $100 gift card sponsored by ArtWalk Longmont, LDDA and the Firehouse Art Center!

How to virtually vote for the People’s Choice Winner:

Voting starts at 10am on 8/27 and closes at 5pm on 8/30.
