As a Pastels on 5th artist, you will be the highlight and main feature of this event! Our artists have creative license with their piece of sidewalk chalk art. Not only will your artwork be on display for the over 3,000+ attendees to see you will also be giving back to the community while doing what you love! Meet and mingle with other amazing artists, support Alternatives to Violence, and be part of this Loveland tradition! Deadline to register is Friday, August 30, 2019.

  • There is no cost for artists to participate – artists are not required to find their own sponsor.
  • We provide the pastels (24 color set of Koss pastels), gloves, the sidewalk square, as well as breakfast and lunch (one lunch ticket per registered artist)!
  • You bring knee pads, paint brushes, your inspiration and creativity.
  • Professional, amateur, and student artists are encouraged to participate in this event. Artists can work in teams of two or more if they choose.
  • Artwork must be appropriate for a family event – no adult themes, nothing political.
