Be an Artist

We invite you to participate in the I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival at Santa Barbara's Old Mission on the Memorial Day weekend in May. A limited number of street painting squares are available for artists. The Festival will provide the chalk and a list of street painting tools and tips for participating artists.

If you can find a business, individual, or organization who would like to sponsor a square, you can be their street painter. An alternative is to sponsor a square yourself or with your friends. In either case you would automatically be included as a street painter in this year's festival. Download the Sponsorship Form.

The festival is taking applications from professional and practicing adult artists who would like to participate as a street painter in the festival. We will review your application and if you are selected we will contact you by mid-May. Download the Artist Application.
