Artpace announces its 13th annual Chalk It Up to be held on downtown Houston Street in San Antonio, Saturday, October 8, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This free, contemporary arts festival turns five downtown city blocks into a chalk canvas, showcasing local emerging artists and raising funds for art education, while also promoting downtown San Antonio as a destination with a thriving arts and culture scene.
Artpace Chalk It Up encourages attendees to become artists for a day in the freestyle area and work on a collaborative, city block-sized mural. Children can take part in hands-on education activities, inspiring innovation by connecting art with science, technology, engineering, and math concepts.
In addition to celebrating local, emerging artists through curated mural displays, Chalk It Up will host several activities that work toward the mission of the event, which is to cultivate a lifelong passion for the arts.
Chalk It Up aims to raise funds through sponsorships to benefit Artpace's free educational programming that serves 8,000 students annually, primarily in schools without art programs. The mission of Artpace Chalk It Up and Artpace's educational programs is to cultivate a lifelong passion for the arts.
At Oxford at Estonia Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
