Bossier art show gives students chance to exhibit creativity

BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) - Students are showcasing their creativity in the Bossier Parish Student Art Show!

The show features art from students in 1st-12th grade. The art council says some of the pieces took up to a month to create, using different mediums like painting, markers and crayons.

Attendees will be able to purchase any pieces they like. Students chose their own sale price, ranging from $1 to $1,000. This gives them the chance to have their art seen by the public in a gallery-like setting.

“Well, I wasn’t thinking about it that much but when I heard that I placed, I was really excited and proud about it honestly,” said Bianca Capell, first place winner.

Bianca, who is a senior this year, says she plans to go wherever life takes her, whether it’s art full time or as a hobby.

Third-place winner Mikayla Crochet said this experience taught her to trust the process and keep going. “I was proud of myself. To be honest, I didn’t think I would place that high. It really built up my confidence in my art a lot.”

Art from the show can be seen and purchased until Jan. 28 at the Bossier Arts Council, 630 Barksdale Blvd.
