Description

The sidewalks along Shattuck Ave. in the Gourmet Ghetto in North Berkeley are the target of artists young and old, professional and greenhorn during the 20th CHOCOLATE & CHALK ART FESTIVAL on Saturday, August 25.

MAKE ART! With no fees to artists, areas of sidewalk are assigned for you to create your own fanciful chalk drawings. Same-day art registration takes place 10AM-5PM in event booths where colorful artist's chalk is available for $10. A CHALK ART CONTEST for the best drawing will be judged after 4PM. Cash prizes are $150, $100, $50 and runners-up get a $25 gift certificate from Books Inc. Winners will be notified by Wednesday after the event.
