Quang Ho Workshop

Quang Ho, one of the most talented painters of our time will be the guest of honor at the PASO ARTSFEST, and will also be speaking at the Friday night State of the Art event. Since his workshop has already sold out, State of the Art is your only chance to interact with this incredible artist in Paso Robles. Don’t miss your chance to hear his illustrated keynote, “Art and the Big Picture.” Following the keynote, head to the Afterparty at Studios on the Park to groove to the live music, indulge in sweet treats, wines and prizes!

This is the perfect event to feed your artistic side. After you work up an appetite, enjoy good eats and tasty drinks. Live music will be present, so grab your dance partner and shake a leg. There are good times to be had by all. Ages 21 and older can hang out at the bar and lounge, and talk about all things art. Top-name wineries have donated their flagship wines to the festival so that 100% of your tasting fees go to support PASO ARTSFEST! Other great packages for the weekend are available for purchase, including the Broad Strokes Pass.

For a beautiful, colorful, educational and oh so artistic weekend, don’t miss PASO ARTSFEST in the downtown Paso Robles City Park.
