“At the Youth Arts, anticipation is growing for our longest session in almost a year! We were thrilled to have so many new families join us for session five, and we welcome all new and returning community kids to join us for session six! It’ll be a session full of fun and creativity with new options including Freestyle Rap and Collage Art!” Operations and Programs Manager Ryan Flores explains. 

Paso Robles Youth Arts Center is located in Paso Robles, California. 

Donna Berg, an artist and philanthropist, established the Paso Robles Youth Arts Center in 1998 as a non-profit organization. Her goal was to create a secure environment for all children in Paso Robles and the neighboring regions to learn about and engage in the arts, regardless of their financial situation. 

The Center encourages children to stay children by promoting the arts and creativity. The arts offer a creative outlet as well as a constructive way to cope with the stresses of life. It has so aided almost 15,000 kids in expressing themselves, pursuing further education, and avoiding gangs and danger. 

All students who want to participate in the programs are welcome to do so. Art, voice, musical theater, drama, guitar, piano, drums, band, theater tech, ballet, hip-hop, break, tap, jazz dance, culinary arts, STEAM, and more are just a few of the classes available. 

You are assisting in the dissemination of the wonderful opportunities that an arts education provides for the well-being of our community’s kids via your donation. To sponsor a student at the Paso Robles Youth Arts Center today, go to and make a donation of any amount. A $250.00 donation will support one student for a full year of courses!
