The 2017 Kayenta Street Painting Festival will be held April 29-30.  We will have no official theme this year which will allow you to use your immense creativity to produce an art masterpiece!  Awards will be given for People’s Choice and Best of Show.   It is our hope to have as many as twenty-five participating artists in addition to the student teams.


Here is what you can expect:


 • Squares will range in size from 8’ x 8’ to 10’ x 10’, depending on the response we get from sponsors.  We are going to try to use the interior spaces of the art village as much as possible rather than have paintings in the outer parking lots.

 • Registration will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, April 28th, and you will be able to begin work if you wish that afternoon.  Judging and the awards ceremony will take place Sunday afternoon.

 • Student teams will be interspersed with adult artists to enrich the experience.

 • Snack, beverages, and food vouchers for the festival days

 • Pastel chalk


If housing is a determining factor in whether or not you can participate, please let us know. We have limited housing available and will do our best to accommodate you.


We are asking that artists use only the pastels provided, no paint.  You are not responsible for providing your own sponsor, but if you have worked with someone in the past, and they are willing to support you again, please let us know. Kayenta Arts Foundation will be responsible for stenciling your sponsor’s name.


Please let us know as soon as possible if you will be participating in the Street Painting Festival.  A firm commitment is needed by March 10, 2017.
