Chalk the Block Rules & Registration Process
*** IMPORTANT INFORMATION. PLEASE READ PRIOR TO REGISTERING AS AN ARTIST. *** THERE IS NO COST TO REGISTER AS AN ARTIST
ARTIST COMMITMENT: By signing up as an artist to participate in the Dexter Chalk the Block Festival you are committing to completing a 4' x 4' design. Typically, a piece this size takes about 3-5 hours. MATERIALS: One box of 24 KOSS International pastel chalk will be provided at no cost. You are welcome to use any of your own supplies as long as they are water-based, non-permanent. Often we have left over pieces of chalk available if you need a specific color. Tempera paint is allowed for the base of the work space. Artist designed templates are allowed. CHECK IN PROCESS: Artists can check in and select their work space as early as 8:30AM on August 10, 2019. LUNCH: Participating artists will be provided a voucher for their lunch sponsored by the Dexter Daze Festival. COMPETITION: This is a friendly competition among the artists and the results are determined by public vote. Spectators will be given voting slips which they turn in to be counted. There are several categories up for consideration including:
Best Nature Related Piece ($100)
Best 3D Design ($100)
Best Cartoon or Comic ($100)
Best in Show ($200)
Artists are eligible to win any one of the categories and Best in Show. An artist can not win more than one of the main three categories (Nature, Art Reproduction, Cartoon). ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONS: The following subjects are not allowed.
Obscene Images or Language
Images of Drugs or Crime
ARTIST STIPEND: Unfortunately, we are not able to provide artist stipends at this time. If you are coming from outside the area there are several great hotels available a short distance from the festival location. THINGS TO BRING: Chalk art is hard work but extremely fun. Here are a few things you may want to bring with you...
Plastic tarp and duct tape in case it rains
Knee pads or padding
Water and snacks
On behalf of Dexter Daze and the Dexter Chalk the Block Festival we greatly appreciate your contribution to the festivities. Your participation in this event is what makes it such a special experience for everyone who attends. Thank you!
