–On Saturday, Paso Robles Downtown City Park was transformed into a canvas for colorful artistic expression with Arte De Tiza. Local artists, both adults and kids, converged to showcase their talents with chalk drawings. The event is presented by the Paso Robles Downtown Main Street Association. 

The event is modeled after a festival in Grazie di Curtatone, Italy. Santa Barbara was the first place to bring the idea to the west with their I Madonnari Festival, held at the Santa Barbara Mission. San Luis Obispo’s chalk art festival, Via Dei Colori, which has been held for 25 years, has been canceled for 2016.

The event is a unique opportunity to observe works in progress and converse with artists.

There is no fee to participate and  chalk is provided by the Paso Robles Art Association. 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 young people achieve in the arts.
