Rising Artists Show

As part of our continuing goal to raise art awareness in the community, OPA sponsored a Rising Artists Show. This show is uniquely for middle school artists, and provides an opportunity for these rising artists to showcase their talents for all to see! The show was hosted at the Fort Walton Public Library. Middle school art teachers in Okaloosa County were invited to participate, so if you have a middle schooler interested in this project, make sure they reach out to the art teacher at the school for more information next year! The student does not have to be enrolled in an art class to participate. Artwork was on display in the library throughout February 2023.
