Chalk Art Scholarship


Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce Visual Arts Scholarship
through the Annual Chalk Walk Art Festival

The Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce is a 501©(6) Not-for-Profit whose mission is to serve, not only the Clearwater Beach Community, but the community at large.

As part of that service, through our Annual Chalk Walk Art Festival, we created a Visual Arts Scholarship in 2013 to benefit the Visual Arts Programs in the Pinellas County School System. The scholarship was created in honor of all of the artists who come out to share their art with the community, and to encourage young artists to follow their dreams.

We raise funds though generous donations and with our silent auction at the Chalk Art Festival.
Come out and bid on our fabulous auction art and beautiful baskets.
