Chalk it up at the 9th Annual Rancho Bernardo Community Council's Chalk It Up!' sidewalk chalk art event, Saturday, May 4, 8 am - 3 pm. This event will be bigger and better than the first eight years! We will be holding our event this year at Sharp Rees-Stealy Rancho Bernardo campus as they celebrate their second anniversary at their new location at 16889 West Bernardo Drive.

What is the 'Chalk It Up!' event? It's a free, family fun event where people of all ages (young and young at heart) have an opportunity to display their artistic skills with chalk on the sidewalks. The Rancho Bernardo Community Council supplies a bucket filled with chalk to each participant. The individuals may take as long as they deem necessary to express their artistic abilities. When they are done, they bring the bucket of chalk back to the registration table in exchange for a free Chick-fil-A sandwich coupon.

Judging will take place at the end of the event and prizes will be awarded for first through third place in each age category (pre-school, elementary, middle, high schools, adult as well as senior categories), as well as a prize for the overall winner. Prizes range from $10 to $50 in gift certificates, all generously donated by local businesses. These businesses will be promoted on our website, facebook page and at the event.

With the new location this year comes lots of wonderful additions. Sharp Rees-Stealy's anniversary celebration! There will be refreshments, music, entertainment, face painting, balloon artist, tours of their facility and more!

We are also adding a very special opportunity drawing again this year - tickets for an art experience at Painting With A Twist! Tickets are valued at $35 each. Click here for flyer:
