Calling all artists — the Initiative for Public Art Reston (IPAR’s) ChalkFest comes back to Reston Town Center Sept. 9-10.

ChalkFest — in which artists of all ages and levels create murals on the pavement on Market Street —  is open to professional artists, amateur artists, families, and kids of all ages.

There will be prizes for professional artists, amateur artists, families and kids, in addition to the “Audience Choice Awards.”

Want to work on your skills before the event? IPAR will host a free chalk workshop with artist Patrick Owens on Saturday, Sept. 3 from 11 am to 1 pm. The workshop will be in front of the Mercury Fountain.

Registration fees start at $15. To reserve your space, visit IPAR online.
