10th Annual Thea Paves the Way
Thea Foundation’s 10th annual sidewalk chalk event, Thea Paves the Way, will be held Saturday, September 12, 2015, on the front lawn of the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, where students and families will share in the creative community effort to cover the sidewalks in vibrant chalk art.
Thea Paves the Way began in 2005 as one of the Thea Foundation’s first outreach events to engage students, teachers, families, community groups and others in an exciting collaborative art project. Today, the event draws 500+ participants.
Thea Paves the Way will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the front lawn of the Clinton Presidential Center. Registration is free and open to school groups, church groups, families, clubs and other organizations. Teachers who register their students and compete together as a school group have a chance to win one of two $250 gift certificates for art supplies from Dick Blick. Participation includes free entrance to the Clinton Library valid the same day of the event. Loblolly Creamery will be onsite selling fresh, handmade ice cream, and a face painting booth will be set up. Sidewalk chalk will be provided, but groups are encouraged to bring extra.
