LPHS hosts Chalk The Walk festival
LaPorte High School is hosting a Chalk The Walk Festival on Saturday, June 18th from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for students who would like to participate in creating art on the spots in th[e student parking lot.
Chalk The Walk is a friendly event that combines the creativity of both the staff and students to promote art at LPHS and LaPorte County.
“I have been trying to have this festival for two years now, and COVID has continuously pushed it back. I originally wanted to have this festival with all the kids of LaPorte County, but in order for it to be allowed, it had to be limited to LPHS students. I am very excited to finally be given the opportunity to have this festival and hopefully more in the future,” art teacher Mrs. Lebo said.
In case of rain, the festival will be rescheduled for a later date. The LPHS Facebook page will publish an update when the date is announced.
Students can apply through the LPHS Facebook page, in the school’s main office, or in Art Room one or two.
The artwork for the festival must be appropriate for public viewing. No political statements, advertisements, drug references, profanity, or nudity will be allowed.
At Chalk The Walk, various colored chalks will be supplied to each artist, along with a food truck on site.
There will be an awards ceremony for the best parking lot creations. The award criteria will be based on originality, quality, and creativity. The winners will be announced after 2:00 p.m. to the first, second, and third winning artists/teams.
