At the Old Town Temecula Street Painting Festival spectators can jump right in by painting their own work of art and it’s free!
Typical sidewalk chalk has less color pigment and is usually less vivid. Artist pastels have richer colors and a wider color palette, aiding the color and depth of the giant murals. Many of the murals are 10 feet wide and 12 feet high. All murals are painted on asphalt giving strong contrast to the pastels.
Techniques for completing the task on time vary. Some artists will mix the chalk with water and spray or brush the backgrounds. Others spread and blend using pieces of carpet. By 3 p.m. on Sunday muralists and master painters will have recreated old masters paintings, originals and modern art in a unique performance art experience.
The Street Painting Festival coincides with the Ralph Love Plein Air Festival. Plein Air simply means that the artist paints the scene on location – outdoors. These artists will paint on small canvases and vie for the purchase award honoring the Best of Show.

Artists are born and discovered at this Street Painting Festival where families and children are given pastels to create their own masterpiece alongside hundreds of murals masterfully painted by more than 100 fine artists. It is all done on the asphalt canvas of Main Street & Town Square in Old Town Temecula. This is performance art in a large-scale way as fine artists spend two solid days creating masterpieces, originals and reproductions of the grand masters. Most murals are 100 square feet or larger. Live world music provides a creative soundtrack for artists and viewers.
