i3 Art Expo save the dateBossier Schools is eager to roll out its inaugural i3 Art Expo, a conglomeration and celebration of all-things-art, and we invite everyone to attend this student showcase May 3-5 that harnesses their amazing talents. 

So what does i3 stand for? Inspiration. Imagination. Innovation. It is the impetus at Bossier Schools and our educators’ mission to inspire today’s youth to imagine the possibilities and become the innovators of tomorrow.

Art comes in many forms and the i3 Art Expo reflects that. From visual and literary art, vocal and musical performances, filmmaking, animation, hands-on STEAM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) and an emphasis on reading, the i3 Art Expo is all-encompassing.

Don’t miss the ThisAbility Walk, a compelling mural that will stretch several hundred feet and represent the collaborative efforts of students with challenges from every school in Bossier Parish. This visual work of art places emphasis on every student’s abilities and talents.

Every second grader in the parish will get the chance to experience i3 and learn that “Reading Rocks.” In partnership with Bossier Parish Libraries, children will be encouraged to read and offered incentives to build their literacy skills over the summer.

Co-sponsored by the City of Bossier City, the i3 Art Expo will also offer student competitions; the 4th annual Bossier Schools Showcase, which highlights individual talents, group performances and more; and readings and presentations from guest authors and artists that are employees of Bossier Schools. 

The three-day arts festival will culminate with an awards ceremony, recognizing student winners in the vast competition categories.

What an amazing event the i3 Art Expo promises to be!
