You'll find us in front of the Miner's & Merchant's Building (200 5th Street - corner of 5th and Portland) heading north. Let's make some art! Kids are welcome to join in whenever or for however long they're interested! Chalk will be provided but children are welcome to bring their own chalk if they like! No RSVP necessary! Children will be invited to create images with the theme "school".
After an hour or so our judges will review the entries and select a winner from each age group!

There are limited spaces available for this event, for those age 16 and up! We are asking 8 local businesses to sponsor a 8'x8' "canvas" for our chalk artists to work on.
Artists will have from 10am -3pm to work on their creations. Our panel of judges will review each entry starting at 3pm and award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards by 5pm!
1st Place $250
2nd Place $100
3rd Place $50
Sites will be randomly assigned. Artists are expected to provide their own supplies for this event. Those wishing to participate must complete the form below, along with a sample or two of their work to be selected for this competition. The theme for the competition is "school". In the case of rain, event hours may have to shift. Artists will be supplied with plastic drop cloth to cover creations should a downpour occur.
Businesses interested in sponsoring a chalk "canvas" near their business can complete the form at left. Sponsorship is $50/canvas and will be invoiced by Main Street Calumet. If sponsor demand and artist supply exceed the initial limit of 8 sites, we will expand the event.
If you would like to sponsor a canvas but your business is not located within the downtown district, you can select a location within the district for "your" site. These remote sites will be labeled with the sponsoring businesses name.
The "canvas" locations will be listed on the CHS-SHHS Art Walk map and businesses recognized on this website and Main Street Calumet social media.
