IMG_2579Join YCS at this annual event where chalk artists will take to the streets to demonstrate their amazing talent and support YCS programs in our community.  This popular event features more than 60 artists from throughout California creating works of art in chalk on the pavement along Tasso.  Participants begin sketching early Saturday morning and complete their pieces by 6 p.m. on Sunday. Paintings are as large as 12x12ft.  For a nominal fee, children under age 12 can join in the fun creating their own masterpiece on a 2x2ft square in the kids’ Chalk-a-Lot area.  All proceeds from the sponsorship of Chalk Art Squares benefit YCS programs in Palo Alto.

Time: Daily 10am-6pm
