The Ar­row­head Chalk Art Fes­ti­val is a free two-day play­ground chalk­ing event. Artists will bring chil­dren’s imag­i­na­tion to life through chalk and spend hours chalk­ing the play­ground at C.S. Lewis Academy in San­taquin dur­ing the last week in April. There will also be chil­dren’s games, mu­sic, good food and even a free-for-all area where kids can chalk the play­ground. Join us on April 24 and 25 at C.S. Lewis Academy in San­taquin for the Ched­dar Chalk Art Fes­ti­val. This will be an event you will not want to miss.

Sign up your team and re­serve your chalk block today be­cause space is limited. You may sign up as an in­di­vid­ual or up to four peo­ple can join as a team. Each team will re­ceive a fes­ti­val T-shirt, chalk, goodie bag and com­ple­men­tary lunch on Satur­day. The chalk draw­ing starts Fri­day, April 24, at 3 p.m. and goes un­til 8 p.m. The sec­ond day of draw­ing starts Satur­day, April 25, at 9 a.m. You must be fin­ished with your chalk art for judg­ing on Satur­day at 4 p.m. We will have prizes and awards in­clud­ing Best in Show, Peo­ple’s Choice, Fac­ulty’s Choice and Spon­sor’s Choice Awards.

To lead up to the event, we will also have a kids col­or­ing con­test. A to­tal of 8,000 col­or­ing books will be dis­trib­uted at the lo­cal Easter Egg Hunts in Payson, Springville, Span­ish Fork, San­taquin and Salem on April 4. Kids can color the pages of the book and sub­mit them to lo­cal busi­nesses dur­ing the month of April for a chance to win prizes and awards. Win­ners will be an­nounced at the Ar­row­head Chalk Art Fes­ti­val on April 25 at 4 p.m.

C.S. Lewis Academy has teamed up with the Ar­row­head Event Mar­ket­ing team, a group of lo­cal advertisers and mar­keters in­clud­ing Lo­cal Ched­dar, Serve Daily, Vil­lager Mag­a­zine, Thrifty Nickel, SFCN17 and Walker Pro­duc­tions, to bring you this event. They in­vite you to join us at this fam­ily-friendly art event and see the many ben­e­fits of hav­ing your chil­dren at­tend C.S. Lewis Academy.

The fo­cus of C.S. Lewis Academy is lit­er­acy. Their goal is that each stu­dent will develop the abil­ity to com­pre­hend and com­mu­ni­cate ef­fec­tively through lis­ten­ing, speak­ing, read­ing, writ­ing and think­ing. With that goal in mind, C.S. Lewis Academy was founded in 2006 by Reba and Daniel Vest, Jeff and Mar­quita Earl, Diana and Chris Erb, Lau­ren and Dave Ploeger, Mar­i­lyn and Matt Roberts, Noele and Doug Cor­ri­gan and Gwen and Mitch Heath.

Ini­tially founded as Payson Prepara­tory Academy, the school’s fo­cus on lit­er­acy prompted the de­sire to name the school af­ter an au­thor. The ini­tial list in­cluded au­thors such as Ralph Waldo Emer­son, Jane Austen, Nathaniel Hawthorne, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. The founders wanted to select an au­thor who ex­em­pli­fied lit­er­acy and great val­ues, ul­ti­mately select­ing Clive Sta­ples Lewis (C.S. Lewis).
