Chalk Walk



April 11, 2015

Where: Market Square and Krutch Park (Downtown Knoxville)
Time: 8:00am to 5:00pm
Raindate: Sunday, April 12
How much: Free
Instructional Workshop: Wednesday, April 8 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Knoxville Museum of Art



The Chalk Walk comes back in its seventh year and remains one of the fan favorites among our visitors in April! The street painting festival, whose origination as a featured event of Dogwood Arts, drew inspiration from a 16th century Italian happening, turns Knoxville’s downtown sidewalks into a seemingly infinite canvas for the region’s most talented professional and student artists. Dogwood Arts brings this event to Knoxville once again to continue to educate visitors and artists, alike, of this lost art in hopes of keeping it alive for future generations. Bring the family and get some ideas for your child’s next driveway masterpiece – or your own!
