Chalk on the Water is a two-day street-painting festival where participants of all ages can create street art. Festival-goers purchase a “plot” of brick space on the plaza in which to create their chalk masterpiece.

Cost for spaces are $5 for children, $10 for adults, and $15 for professional artists. Registration of available online at www.chalkonthewater.com.  Registration is still open, and there are only 100 spaces available for this event.

There will be cash prizes for various categories, which will be judged by notable community members.

The festival, which runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, will also include food, a live DJ, and a wine garden.

Money raised from Chalk on the Water will benefit the Initiative for Public Art-Reston (IPAR).

The festival is sponsored by the Friends of Lake Anne (FOLA), Reston Art Gallery, and Washington Parent Magazine.
