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 3,500+ 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! Deadline to register is Friday, August 28, 2020.

  • There is no cost for artists to participate – artists do not have to find a sponsor.
  • We provide a 24 color set of Koss pastels (these are approved by the City of Loveland and the only pastels allowed at the event). Please DO NOT bring your own pastels or you will not be eligible for any of our event awards.
  • Breakfast and lunch (one lunch ticket per registered artist) are provided!
  • You bring knee pads, paint brushes, sunscreen, your inspiration, and creativity.
  • Professional, amateur, and student artists are encouraged to participate (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!
