ROUND ROCK, Texas -- The 2013 Round Round Chalk Walk found no shortage of talent and fun this weekend.

The two-day festival held Friday and Saturday showcased chalk masterpieces by artists of all ages.

The Round Rock Chalk Walk is the Round Rock Arts Council’s version of an Italian Street painting Festival. Artists are free to create, with chalk pastels, a picture on the concrete. Drawings are created in full view of the public, who are encouraged to interact with the artists as they use their amazing talents to create beautiful “murals” before their audience’s eyes. And at the end of it all, the drawings disappear.

Each year, artists, school art programs, individuals and businesses donate a work of art to be auctioned off for art program funding. Judge's picked the best art to win cash rewards.
