Chalk The Walk ARTsplosion

"Chalk the Walk ARTsplosion" takes over the Virginia Beach Boardwalk from 10:00 am-5:00 pm on Saturday, July 9, 2016 as hundreds of 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 displayed for two blocks between 16th and 18th Streets.

Advance registration for the Chalk the Walk is not required and there is no fee to participate, but we do ask that artists bring their own chalk. 

The theme for 2016 is "Rock the Walk". We are encouraging all artists to incorporate a musical theme into their pieces. From illustration of a memorable performance, a favorite album cover or instrument, to a more abstract approach depicting how a piece of music makes you feel, there are a plethora of ways to interpret this theme and make it uniquely yours! 
At Chalk The Walk ARTsplosion, participants draw four by four foot chalk drawings for two blocks along the boardwalk. 200 competitors complete chalk drawings to be evaluated by a panel of judges. Judges score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and overall creativity. 

There are three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth. The Youth division is for ages 12-16. Children 11 and under are invited to draw for fun in a separate area. Trophies and cash prizes are awarded for each division, with winners announced at 4:30pm at the registration tent. The hours for the Chalk the Walk are 10:00am-5:00pm. 

All participants must register by 1:00pm to qualify for the competition.  All drawings must be completed by 3:30pm to be eligible for prizes.
