Does the most original and charming art come from youths? See it at ArtBreak Fest in the Shreveport Convention Center Fri, May 2 through Sun, May 4

Artbreak Festival is a cornucopia of student activity including music, drama, poetry and visual art. The color and energy explode at the Shreveport Convention Center.

Artbreak has a kinship to Jazzfest in that you don't really have to know anyone who's exhibiting or have a schedule of performances. You simply go when you can and allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the
gigantic wall of polychrome expression. It will make you a believer in Shreveport and the power of area schools to develop modern communications skills.
