3rd Annual SBTC Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest Is Back with Free Kids Painting Class!

Help us celebrate the third anniversary of the San Bernardino Transit Center at the annual SBTC Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest! The contest, themed “A Trip Around the World,” will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018 on the concrete floors of the San Bernardino Transit Center.

This community celebration will feature live music broadcast by Hot 103.9, refreshments, and – new this year – a FREE painting class for children ages 7-13! Prize raffles and promotional giveaways will round out the day.

We hope to see new and familiar faces at this year’s event! The new kids painting class will be strictly for children ages 7-13, starts at 9:30 a.m. and lasts one hour. This class will be taught by one and only, Susan from Cherry Valley’s The Art Barn.

Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest
With only 30 spaces available for the Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest, creativity and connecting to the theme will get you one step closer to the grand prize!

This year’s theme opens up a world of opportunities for art. Where would you ride the bus to if you could ride anywhere in the world? The Taj Mahal or the Eiffel Tower? The colors and sights in Thailand or Mexico? The world is your oyster!

Be sure to start grab your passport and start brainstorming your interpretation of “A Trip Around the World”. Let your creativity shine for a chance to win the grand prize – a $300 Visa gift card, $150 Visa gift card for second place, or $100 Visa gift card for third place. All gift card prizes will be awarded in the Adult division for participants 14 and older. However, all participants 13 and under will receive a movie ticket just for participating!
