I think we can all agree that one of our favorite gifts growing up was chalk. From elementary to middle school our driveway was our canvas, and we were the greatest artists the world had ever seen. Next month, the streets will be the canvas for anyone who wants to come out and transform Downtown San Antonio into a literal art gallery.

Artpace San Antonio is inviting guests to "Chalk It Up" on Saturday, October 12. The event will start at 10 a.m. and run for 6 hours so you can enjoy food trucks, live music, and of course, the crazy chalk creations all day long.

If you think you've got what it takes to decorate downtown San Antonio's sidewalk, and even if you don't (we can't all be Picasso), you need to be there this next weekend, even if it's only for awesome artistic photos. We're beginning to feel the nostalgia sweep over us just thinking of the sound drawing with chalk makes. 

Artpace Chalk It Up Has been coming to San Antonio since 2004, giving artists the chance to show their stuff to the world. The city's best artists will be there to create gorgeous murals, and so will over 80 schools and community groups!

Freestyle Zones are designated for those who want to do just that, and they're open to absolutely anyone. You don't even have to bring your own chalk, it'll be provided for you.

We can't wait for this incredible event to be back in SA once again. Once the holidays are here, the city will be filled with Day Of The Dead festivities and Christmas parades. For now, we'll be refreshing ourselves on how to draw with chalk and getting ready to show off our mad skills.
