Chalk It Up

Chalk-It-Up! to Sacramento is a nonprofit organization created to benefit children’s arts education and art activities. Funds are raised through an annual chalk art and music festival That has been held each Labor Day Weekend since 1991.

The festival features over 200 sidewalk paintings created at the festival by local artists who donate their time, energy, and talent in support of youth art activities. The pieces are done with soft chalk pastel mixed with water. These concrete masterpieces are there for public to enjoy throughout the weekend festival.

Federico students spent their Labor day volunteering hair chalking services for the children attending Chalk it Up.  All proceeds went directly to the Chalk it Up organization.


It was super busy,  throughout the day more kids would come over as they would see each other’s cool hair.  They were all really excited! I chalked at least 26 kids… it was a crazy, fun day! – Savannah R.


Hair Chalking gives you super powers according to this little one!


I love that I attend a school that allows me to earn hours in different environments.  Community Engagement is so important and I feel blessed to be able to support my local community while furthering my education. – Ashley N.


Our students had a blast hanging out with their young clients and we can’t wait to help out again, next year.
