There aren’t many rules but no politics, no religion and no nudes—unless famous work of art. For example one artist is chalking the statue of David—both religious and nude—-but obviously a famous work of art.
Subjects: Artists will advise organizers of their proposed artwork.
Biographies: If you're new, send me a biography, if a returning artist, let me know any updates you want to include
T-shirts: Please let me know your size.
Wingman: If you’re bringing a wingman, please bring something for them to sit on and let me know so we can make the appropriate lunch orders.
Sponsors: Some of you will be asked to chalk a sponsor’s logo next to your art piece—it really matters.
Placement: Some of you have asked to be near others. We will try to accommodate
Please use social media. We have a Facebook page “sweet chalk festival lockport” twitter is “@sweetlockport”, Instagram is “sweetlockport”
Hours: We have the site Friday through Monday and the site will be open to artists starting at 2pm on Friday and you can be there anytime but volunteers will be manning the site Saturday and Sunday 8 to 5.
Feel free to paint your spot first. We have extra if you need it but remember, it needs to be tempera and it works best if it is watered down. If you’re unsure, ask some of the veterans about how thin it should be.
What to bring:
Chalk and pastels [but no oil based pastels], sunglasses, piece of carpet to sit on, knee pads, hat, gloves, sunblock, business cards/postcards, seat for your wingman, handiwipes, spray bottle, sponge. We allow tents for shade. We provide a short one page biography to place next to your spot but feel free to bring your own.
We’ll have a few things available.
Food and Water:
Lunch will be provided and we will nag you about hydration and sunblock. Trust us, you’ll thank us later.
Student Artists: We provide only one box of chalk. Tempera paint, tarps, paint brushes and extra chalk will NOT be made available. Only pre-registered/admitted students will be assigned a space. All other students will be welcome to work in the "Little Chalkers" area.
Any questions or concerns, let me know.
