Issaquah is about to get a bit more colorful, thanks to the annual Chalk Art Festival.
This year, the festival, sponsored by the Issaquah Arts Commission, will hit the sidewalks around the Issaquah Community Center on July 30. From noon to 5 p.m., anyone can show up and create some art.
According to Amy Dukes, the arts coordinator for the commission, most of the participants are elementary school age, although kids and adults of all skill levels come out to draw. Many are there just to doodle, while some come with a fully formed idea in mind, complete with sketches and outlines.
