 Uma Kyles Performing at the Walton Arts Center

We would like to announce that Arkansas Arts Academy 6th grader Uma Kyles will be starring in the upcoming production of Sideways Stories From Wayside School at the Walton Arts Center in March.  If you want to support one of our students on the big stage, please go here to buy tickets.

 K-6 Dance Gala Volunteers Needed

Our Annual Dance Gala is approaching quickly. This is the K-6 dance program's annual celebration event that showcases every student in the dance program as they perform on stage at the high-school Performing Arts Center.

We have a serious need for parent volunteers to help pull this event together. Below are 3 Sign-Up Genius links that list several volunteer positions available in separate departments of the Dance Gala. None of these volunteer commitments will keep you from seeing the show. 

Please click the links below and sign up if you are able to help or contact Mrs. Finley cmarie@artsk12.org. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
