Arts of the Pamlico
October 16, 2021
This year, Arts of the Pamlico will be hosting its first youth arts Chalkfest event during the annual Smoke on the Water festival on October 16, 2021 and we would LOVE for your youth groups/classes to participate!
Chalkfest is a competition designed specifically for youth in the area to exercise their creativity as a team!
All age students are welcome and may be attending public schools, private schools, homeschooling and more to come together and give us
their best chalk art!
Each team will be assigned to a section of sidewalk by the NC Estuarium to draw on and be given 2 hours max to create their masterpiece. Students will gather around the estuarium from 1-3pm with their adult chaperones (teachers/parents/etc) and get in their teams to draw. The students may take as much or as little of the provided time as they would like to complete their piece and then join their adults to enjoy Smoke on the Water.
AOP’s Heather Summers will serve as the judge and will award teams within the competition based on their assessment so the kids will want to be practicing their collaborative piece. The awards will be announced by 3:30pm.
This year, our competition will be in honor of local artist Jefferey Jakub. We would like for your team to pick your favorite of his paintings and duplicate the image in chalk! You can check out his artwork here. http://
