Oklahoma City Girls Art School GROW Fundraiser and Exhibition
Oklahoma City, OK – Oklahoma City Girls Art School announces its annual GROW Fundraiser and Exhibition which will be held on Friday, April 7, 2017 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at SixTwelve in the Paseo Arts District. GROW will benefit their after school visual arts program.
GROW is a spring, garden and growth themed event with art created by Oklahoma City Girls Art School’s students. Art includes ceramic garden stakes, fairy houses, and nature trays. Also included in this year’s event is The Gnome Project. Local artists have been invited to “art” a girl or boy garden gnome or a mushroom. Gnomes and mushrooms will be for sale at the event. Funds raised will directly benefit the general operating costs of the organization.
The event will also offer free facepainting from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, a chance to win one of two ceramic bowls collaboratively created by artist Angela Williams and students from the Oklahoma City Girls Art School, light hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine and chances to win gifts from local businesses and organizations.
The Oklahoma City Girls Art School is an after school visual arts program for at-risk elementary, middle school girls attending school in the Oklahoma City school district. The mission of the Oklahoma City Girls Art School is to empower underserved girls to become successful in life through learning about the arts, the artist and the arts community. Our goal is to provide high quality visual arts training, introduce the girls to successful artists and give the girls an opportunity to experience how the arts help build our community. The ultimate goal of the Oklahoma City Girls Art School is to inspire a love of the arts, an appreciation of creative discipline and process, enabling the girls to be confident, imaginative, tolerant, generous and cooperative, as well as becoming contributing participants in the global art community. Students are encouraged to continue with the program until they graduate from high school.
The event will be held at 612 NW 29th Street in the Paseo Arts District.
