Producer of the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival in San José, CA, the Luna Park Arts Foundation provides free and low cost opportunities for the community to come together to participate in creative projects.

These activities include the Chalk Art Festival, interactive workshops at schools, libraries and parks, and interactive chalk art areas at local events.

We raise money to provide grants to K-12 visual / performing arts programs in local schools and nonprofit youth programs, as well as stipend opportunities for local artists.

We operate entirely by volunteers and bring together artists, students, teachers and neighbors to make it happen.

We believe that everyone should have opportunities

-to create

-to learn about the arts

-to interact with their community
