Chalk It Up SacramentoVisual Arts

Chalk-It-Up! to Sacramento is a nonprofit organization created to benefit children's arts education and art activities. Funds are raised through an annual chalk art festival held each Labor Day Weekend.

The festival features over 200 sidewalk paintings created at the festival by local artists who donate their time, energy, and talent.  These concrete masterpieces are left on the sidewalk for the public to enjoy throughout the month of September.  The pieces are done with soft chalk pastel mixed with water.


Festival has a children/youth component.
