Paso Robles Art Association - Arte de Tiza, Chalk Art Event - September 17


Paso Robles comes alive every mid September as artists begin at early light to “CHALK UP” the downtown City Park sidewalks. It is the annual chalk festival sponsored by the Paso Robles Art Association to raise funds to support college scholarships for art majors in our community.

Arte de Tiza is a celebration that offers a visual feast of chalk murals created by area artists on the City Park sidewalks. Downtown Paso Robles is transformed into an artistic palette of colorful beauty during this event. Observe works in progress, converse with artists or just stroll up and down the street and see the artistic creativity of those working in chalk. It is a sight to behold!

The event takes place Saturday, September 17, 2016.

There is no fee to participate and chalk is provided by the Paso Robles Art Association. Awards for each division, Elementary, Middle and High School, as well as Adult, will be announced at the City Band Stand the day of the event. Participants may work individually or in groups. Each division will be awarded a first, second and third place prize. So as they say the day of the event, “Let’s Chalk UP”.

The money raised through sponsors of this event (except for a few dollars for supplies) will be put back into the community in the form of scholarships. Everything is provided by sponsors, donors and volunteers. It is through the generosity of all those involved in “Arte de Tiza” that has made this such a successful event each year and has helped so many of our young people achieve in the arts.

PRAA is inside the Studios on the Park in Studio #7 at 1130 Pine Street, Paso Robles, CA, 93446
