District holds Big Art Day on March 25 in celebration of Youth Art Month
Pearland Independent School District invites adults and children of all ages to attend Big Art Day, a FREE event for the entire family in celebration of Youth Art Month. Hosted by Pearland ISD’s Fine Arts department, the event is set to happen on Saturday, March 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Pearland Town Center Pavillion located at 11200 Broadway St, Pearland, TX 77584.
In alignment with an initiative by the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA), Pearland ISD Big Art Day’s goal is to raise awareness about art and theatre as creative forces in our schools and community.
“By participating in art education, students have the opportunity to learn, grow and develop critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and communication, among other extremely valuable skills,” Pearland ISD Fine Arts Coordinator Victor Raygoza said. “This is our second year to host Pearland ISD’s Big Art Day, and we look forward to celebrating the culmination of Youth Art Month with an art event for the entire family. We have several activities planned with one goal: to have our community come together to enjoy and celebrate art.”
The main attraction of Pearland ISD’s Big Art Day will be led by more than 55 high school and junior high students through live chalk art. Embracing the tropical theme, the six thousand square foot piece will bring to life creative artwork fully executed by the students.
Activities/attractions at Pearland ISD's Big Art Day will also include:
- Make and Takes: with the assistance of Pearland ISD art teachers, children of all ages will be able to participate in several art projects utilizing different art supplies;
- Theatre and dance performances by PHS’s Pearland Theatre and Prancers and DHS’s Ovation Theatre and Diamonds;
- Face painting;
- Door prizes;
- Food trucks and more!
While attending Pearland ISD’s Big Art Day, guests will also have an opportunity to enjoy the artwork of students of all grade levels, displayed at several stores across Pearland Town Center.
Pearland ISD Big Art Day would not be possible without the partner Pearland Town Center, the exclusive healthcare sponsor Memorial Hermann Pearland and sponsors: Pearland ISD Education Foundation, National University, Forest Park South Funeral Home, Pearland Convention & Visitors Bureau and Ace T-shirts.
