The Chalk the Walk ARTsplosion takes over the Virginia Beach Boardwalk from 10:00am-5:00pm on Saturday, July 6, 2019, as artists and “wanna-be artists” gather to turn the boardwalk into an impromptu canvas of color!  Artist registration will be on the boardwalk at 17th Street, and art will be on display between 15th and 17th Streets.

At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four foot chalk drawings for three blocks along the boardwalk. 

This year's theme: A Big, Beautiful World

Here are some ideas to launch your creative thinking:

  • Your depiction of an ideal world, real or imagined
  • A place you’ve visited that brings back fond memories
  • Iconic world landmarks
  • A place you’ve always wanted to visit

200 competitors will complete chalk drawings to be evaluated by a panel of judges.  Judges will score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and creativity.  There will be three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth.  The Youth division will be for ages 12-16.  Children 11 and under will be invited to draw for fun in a separate area.  Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded for each division.  Winners will be announced at 4:45pm at the registration tent.  The hours for the Chalk the Walk are 10:00am-5:00pm. 

Our registration tent will be located on the boardwalk at 17th Street.

All participants must register by 12:30pm to qualify for the competition.  All drawings must be completed by 3:30pm to be eligible for prizes. 

Advance registration for Chalk the Walk is not required.  There is no fee to participate, but it is recommended that artists bring their own chalk.
