Chalk Block

Presented by Lee Health and Golisano Children’s Hospital

Enjoy watching 40 teams from Lee County High Schools and professional chalk street painting artists create beautiful drawings — not on canvas but on the pavement.

For most students this is their first time painting with chalk on the ground. You’ll be amazed at their talent.

The 2019 theme for student and professional artists was Magic of the Ordinary. Your piece should also be created in an artistic style such as Impressionism, Cubist, Realism … We think the possibilities are endless, see how far your imagination will take you!

Please check back this fall to register for the 2020 Chalk Block.
