The Chalk Spot is a street chalk art display for children in kindergarten through 12th grade. The event is scheduled for the Saturday of Labor Day weekend during Art in the Park. Participants will have the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind designs in three sq. ft. spaces. The art will remain on display throughout the festival (weather permitting).
Registration is recommended, and all registered participants will receive a goodie bag filled with a box of sidewalk chalk, two tickets to the North Georgia State Fair, coupons, and more.
Proceeds will benefit the Marietta High School Art Club. Susan Pritchard, Marietta High School Art Club Advisor, is “very excited about the opportunity for the club members to help produce the display and is equally excited for the additional funds, which will be used for art show prizes.” The high school’s Early Childhood Education career pathway students will also be assisting with the event.
The event is free to watch and parking is available in the Cobb County parking decks.
Saturday of Labor Day weekend from 10am to 3pm. Art will remain on display through the festival (weather permitting).
