About Studios on the Park

Studios on the Park

Just weeks after opening in 2009, Studios on the Park co-hosted the inaugural Festival of the Arts! And since that day, we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure that the Central Coast community and its visitors continue to have access to the visual arts. In three years, our nonprofit open studios art center has become the “crown jewel” of Paso Robles with nine working studios, 20 professional artists and two galleries on site. Major 2013 milestones included 223 collaborative special events, over 167 multimedia classes and workshops, 26 fine art exhibitions, and the Kids Art Smart program serving over 1,000 local schoolchildren. Through these and other efforts, Studios on the Park has fulfilled our mission of making the creative process available to the public while becoming a strong cultural anchor to the downtown and a destination for tourists and art enthusiasts.

Yet, these numbers are only reflections of the passion and enthusiasm that flows through our building each day. One of the most exciting ways for us to showcase our talented artists and the results of our community efforts is the Festival of the Arts. We invite you and thousands more to experience that which makes our lives worthwhile: art, art and more art!

One exceptional arts festival in Paso Robles wine country.
