Art Students to Compete in Annual Sidewalk Chalk Art Competition

The 19th Annual New Hanover County Schools High School Sidewalk Chalk Art Competition will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at Mayfaire Town Center.  Each high school art team will be assigned a corner at the intersection of Main and Innovation to create their chalk designs from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. The public is invited to observe the creation of the artwork by students from Ashley, Hoggard, Laney and New Hanover high schools. Several middle school art students will also be on hand to observe and create smaller versions of chalk designs. A panel of judges will critique the artwork. An awards ceremony will take place in front of Mayfaire Cinema at the water fountain. The winning high school art team will receive the coveted NHCS High School Sidewalk Chalk Art plaque to be displayed at their school for one year.
This event is sponsored by NHCS and Mayfaire Town Center.  For additional information about the annual sidewalk chalk art competition, contact NHCS Arts Education Supervisor Georgeann Haas at 910-254-4290 or Mayfaire Marketing Director Paige Kon at (910) 256-5131.
