Every Memorial Day weekend, the plaza outside Santa Barbara’s Mission is decorated with 200 beautiful chalk paintings as part of I Madonnari, an Italian street painting festival that features 400 artists over the three-days. Youth Interactive is so excited to have the opportunity to once again participant in this fantastic event and create our own street painting! We are able to partake in this event thanks to our partner, Santa Barbara Beautiful, who pays our students for their handwork during the festival. We are so proud to be their selected partner for the third year in a row now!
In addition to amazing art work, I Madonnari features live music and authentic Italian food for the over 25,000 annual visitors that come to see the life-like street paintings. Our Creative Studio team is ecstatic to be a part of this amazing event and to have the opportunity to showcase their unbelievable talent in front of the Old Mission.
If you will be in Santa Barbara this Memorial Day weekend, make sure to stop by I Madonnari to support our talent artists and experience these gorgeous, large-scale street paintings for yourself!
