I've been to every year of Artbreak going back 32 years. It's one of my favorite festivals in our region. You can find hands-on art projects for your youngsters to try. You've also find lots of performance arts.

Artbreak is the largest showcase of student art programs in the South featuring more than 100 Caddo and Bossier Parish and private schools, more than 50 hands-on art learning activities, more than 100 school and community performances.

The ArtBreak Talent Show is Friday night at 7:00pm.

Artbreak features more than 3,000 student works of art. The youngsters will also be vying for more than $20,000 in cash awards.
