Arté de Tiza

Saturday, September 14, 2019

On Saturday, September 14th, the City Park sidewalks will come alive with brilliant work by artists of all ages creating Arté de Tiza—chalk art. Artists of all ages create chalk art on the sidewalks surrounding the city park. This annual event produced by the Paso Robles Art Association (PRAA) along with the Paso Robles Main Street Association, raises funds to provide art scholarships for Cuesta College students.

“Arte de Tiza has been creating excitement for artists, their friends and families, visitors and art lovers for many years.” states Carolyn Braun, PRAA President and Event Chair. “Everyone visiting downtown Paso this weekend will enjoy the colorful creativity of inspired young artists.”

Participant categories are: Pre-kindergarten to Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and Adult. Each division receives awards for first, second and third place. “The winners and their families were ecstatic” proclaims Roger Bowsky, former Chairperson for this event for several years.

Many people who enjoy watching the artists work will participate in Taste of Downtown sponsored by the Downtown Association which coincides with Arte de Tiza. Spectators were sampling creations from local restaurants, breweries, wineries, and other eateries throughout the day.

“We want to thank the Optimist Club for their generous donation supporting children’s education in our community. We will be able to award $2,000 in scholarships this year!” exclaimed Roger Bowsky. “Our volunteer members were setting up at 6:00 AM, so their hard work made things happen.”
