Announcing the 5th Annual Foxborough Street Painting Festival
Our 5th Annual Foxborough Street Painting Festival will take place Saturday, May 18th, 2019. The theme this year will be “Travel Destinations”. We can’t wait to see where the artists take us, whether it be a regional destination, a global destination, or a fictional destination. The possibilities are endless.
2019 Artist Application Forms
Every year, we're blown away by the incredible community support and artist turnout. Last year topped our numbers, despite the change in date due weather. Our artists came from 16 different towns to cover the walkways of North Marketplace with 53 vibrantly colored chalk drawings. With the support of the artists, their families, and all the patrons who came out to cheer us on we were able to raise over $1,000 for the Gerald Roy Memorial Scholarship. Mr. Roy was a pillar of our art community, having taught Art at FHS for over 30 years and having served as the K-12 Art Department Head for Foxborough Public Schools. When he started teaching there were only 25 students enrolled in art class, only 1 classroom, and little more than a box of crayons for supplies. Today we are proud to teach over 1,000 aspiring FHS artists in 15 different Art Electives that range from CP to AP level. The Gerald Roy Memorial Scholarship, with the support of Mr. Roy's family and friends, awarded scholarships to four FHS graduating seniors from the Class of 2018, each of the award recipients are currently attending college and majoring in either Art or Education.
Thank you to everyone who continues to come out each May and Live Art Out Loud with us.
We love having you as part of our Foxborough Street Painting Family!
