Paso Robles Art Association – Art Scholarships
PRAA’s past president, Page Graeber, had an idea to bring more art into the community and to help fund art scholarships. Over sixteen years ago, the sidewalk art event, Arte de Tiza, was held in the Paso Robles downtown park and it remains an annual September tradition.
Arte de Tiza is free to the public, ages kindergarten to adult.
Arte de Tiza – Volunteers secure city event permits, close off streets, set-up registration, and run this annual event. Sponsoring businesses are acknowledged, participants display their art and win prizes, scholarships are funded and the PRAA organization continues bringing art to our community. Volunteers go home tired and smiling.
Today PRAA partners with the Cuesta College Foundation in the scholarship process.
