Chalk It Up! aims to empower and support the next generation of Sacramento artists through targeted art grants for young artists and the programs which inspire them. Our free Labor Day Weekend Chalk It Up! Festival at Fremont Park is our biggest event of the year, bringing people from all over the region to downtown Sacramento in celebration of chalk art, music, and community.
By partnering with nonprofit organizations such as the Sacramento Zoo and Farm to Fork Festival, we provide chalk art at community events. We also partner with the Crocker Art Museum for our annual High School Self Portrait Show.
When we’re not out in the community, we also award grants for arts education to teachers and organizations to support the next generation of Sacramento artists.
