Artist Information

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 other amazing artists, support Alternatives to Violence, and be a part of this Loveland tradition!

  • No cost for participating artists and artists are not required to find their own sponsors.
  • 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.
  • Student art clubs/classes are invited to participate. More information about this available soon!
