For the sixth consecutive year, the district wide art show gives Broken Arrow Public Schools’ (BAPS) students the opportunity to present their artistic talents and creativity to the community. This annual event takes place at Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow (NSU-BA) April 12-15 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is free to the public. In addition, parents, teachers, students and community members are invited to the Gala Opening on Tuesday, April 12, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
“Broken Arrow has a long tradition of quality visual arts programs in our schools,” said Dr. Richard Dale, BAPS director of fine arts. “Our districtwide art show, in partnership with NSU-BA, is a great opportunity to recognize these great programs and the many talented fine arts students. We hope that all of Broken Arrow will join us to experience the dedication our students have to their craft.”
Featuring paintings, sculptures, photography and more, the districtwide art show is a BAPS tradition for students in grades K through 12.
“I thoroughly enjoy inspiring and challenging my students to always produce the very best art they can,” said Judy Whitley, art teacher at Oak Crest Elementary. “I let them know about the art show at the beginning of the school year, so they can look forward to the final presentation of their work. The art show gives them the stage to show off what they have accomplished during the year.”
This event takes place in NSU-BA’s administrative services building, visitor’s center and ballroom, located at 3100 East New Orleans at the intersection of 101st street and the Creek Turnpike <map>. Please click here for more information.
