What: Loomis Eggplant Street Chalk Art Contest
When: Saturday, October 2nd
Where: Taylor Road, by the High Hand Art Gallery

Get excited! A Street Chalk Art Contest is back at the Loomis Eggplant Street Fair. The free Chalk Art Contest, which will take place on Taylor Road in front of the High Hand Art Gallery, is an opportunity for all levels of abilities to express themselves through their art drawn on asphalt.

Loomis artist Brenda Dominguez, who has been part of the Loomis Art Loop in previous years and has provided beautiful artworks for all to see, is heading up the Chalk Art Contest.
“I know this will bring a new dimension to the festival,” Dominguez said. “There’s so much talent in Placer County and this will be a fun place to show it off.”

The Street Chalk Art Contest will have three categories: Children, amateurs, and professionals. Each of these categories will have a first-, second and third-place winner. The winners will be selected by a panel from the Loomis Chamber and will receive a prize. The public is welcome to vote for the People’s Choice Award.

There is no entry fee to enter, but participants should register by Thursday, September 30th. Walk-ups are welcomed but space is limited.
Drawing size for the three different levels of competition are as follows:

Participants are responsible for providing their own supplies. Only solid non-toxic chalk pastels are allowed; no oil pastels or paint of any kind may be used. Bring a water spray bottle, rags, and a whisk broom. Don’t forget something to sit on such as a stool or gardening pad, a hat, sunscreen, and drinking water.

Chalk Art Contest images must be family-friendly. No lewd, political, or commercial images will be allowed. No stenciling will be allowed. You may have multiple squares, but only one entry will be allowed in the competition. A limited supply of chalk will be available for purchase on the day of the event.
