The Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation recently announced the promotion of Mindy Sisemore to new executive director. Responsible for the organization’s consistent achievement of its mission and financial objectives, Sisemore will serve as the face of the organization while reporting to the board of directors.

“I look forward to continuing to serve our youth in this new capacity through this wonderful non-profit that Donna Berg founded,” Sisemore said. “I am dedicated to this task because it provides vital cultural enrichment to the youth of our community.”

Sisemore first joined PRYAF as a supporter in 2010, then began volunteering on the Marketing Committee, and soon after became an involved parent of a PRYAF student. More recently, as a member of the staff she has helped the organization grow through marketing and developmental efforts as an art instructor and the programs manager.

“We are very fortunate to have someone who is so passionate about the arts, and so dedicated to the mission of PRYAF leading the charge!” PRYAF Board President Nancy Beckett said.


Founded in 2001, the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to, “enrich the lives of area youth with free classes in the visual and performing arts in a safe, nurturing environment.” PRYAF currently serves more than 366 students five-18 years of age who participate in fifty-four classes each week. For information regarding making a donation, volunteering, attending events, fund raisers, or classes, please contact the PRYAF office at (805) 238-5825 or visit
