The event, an environmentally themed sidewalk chalk-art contest for students in grades K to 12, runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the center.

Riverwalk Nature Center is at 5355 U.S. Highway 1 in Rockledge.

This year’s theme is “Life in the Mangroves.”

There is no fee to enter and prizes will be awarded to the judges’ top choices in each age group. One award will be given for People’s Choice, which will be determined by popular vote of the attending public.

A special Bob Ross Class will also be held during this time for those not participating in the sidewalk art.

The class will be offered at a reduced rate of $25, with limited space available.

The Bob Ross Wet-on-Wet Technique allows students to leave every class with a complete, ready-to-frame painting. The frame is not included.
