In celebration of the Prom Centennial, the Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District is hosting a chalk art contest on the Seaside Promenade. The event is open to artists of all ages and skill levels.
Portland artists Bev Cordova and May Wallace will be offering a class in chalk art on Friday, July 30, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Sunset Recreation Center, providing contestants with a chance to learn how to create chalk art using pastels.
On Saturday, July 31, artists will create art on the Seaside Promenade near the Turnaround starting at 9 a.m., with judging and an awards ceremony with prizes that afternoon.
The entrance fee for the class and contest is $25 and includes a set of pastels and other supplies to create chalk art on the Prom. Call 503-738-3311 to register.
A portion of this project was made possible through a grant from the Seaside Tourism Advisory Committee, funded by room tax dollars. This event has also been funded by a grant from the Juan Young Trust.
There is also a need for volunteers for this event. Email Melissa Ousley at email@example.com.
