The south's most gargantical student art feast: consume Artbreak deliciousness at the Shreveport Convention Center from Ap 30 to May 2
The Artbreak festival engages more than 100 schools, includes more than 50 hands-on art activities, features 100 school and community performances, and exhibits more than 3,000 works of art by students, says Pam Atchison.
Highlights of this year's Artbreak festival include the Very Special Arts Festival, Robotics Showcase, the Superintendents' Performing Arts Showcases, the Art of Fashion Design, and more than 50 hands-on arts activities.
The hands-on art activity booths will be open each day as follows: April 30, 4 to 8 p.m.; May 1, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and May 2, noon to 5 p.m.
Sci-Port will be on hand May 1 with their "Space Journeys Science Carnival," where families can engage in life in space.
Admission to ArtBreak is free. There is plenty of free parking surrounding the Shreveport Convention Center and there will be a free "Yellow Bus Trolley" transporting festival-goers from the Municipal Auditorium parking lot to Shreveport Convention Center. Parking in the Convention Center garage is also a good idea; it's $5.
The Shreveport Convention Center will provide concession booths with special "kid friendly" menus and pricing.
