Beginning at 12:00pm an opening ceremony at the Acadiana Center for the Arts will launch the Student Arts Expo, after which LPSS student artwork and performances can be viewed in downtown venues. We will send you copies of the program including all events and a map of downtown Lafayette, so that you can send info home to your students before Expo.
Student Artist Market
The Student Artist Market provides an opportunity for student artists to become entrepreneurs by selling their artwork! Learn about pricing, setup and what sells from a practiced artist.
Help us kick off the Student Arts Expo with the Art Parade! We invite you to put together a group of students and represent your school as we march through the streets to showcase the arts in our community! We will meet at 11:45am at the Acadiana Center for the Arts to gather.
Art In Action
This year we will be celebrating our students "Art in Action." Each school may register one student to participate in creating an original piece of art LIVE at the Student Arts Expo. Local artists will judge the work created by students in the categories of elementary, middle, and high school. Completed art will be donated to a silent auction to benefit Arts in Education. Each student will receive 20% of the proceeds.
