SBISD Student Art Auction

A colorful collection of student artwork is now on display on the second floor of the Wayne Schaper, Sr., Leadership Center (Administration Building), located at 955 Campbell Rd.

More than 200 pieces of art, including student paintings, ceramics, jewelry, photography and a number of other mediums are open for bidding until May 4.

The art auction is held each year in conjunction with Running for the Arts. Public visiting hours at the Schaper Leadership Center are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays. Visitors should enter the building through the south side main lobby.

A photo ID or driver’s license is needed to quickly move through the building’s security protocol. Spring Branch ISD values learning and it promotes student success in all areas, including the arts.

With so many talented young artists, visitors are guaranteed to find a favorite piece or two that looks great in the home or offices.

On behalf of SBISD, we encourage you to stop by, have a look at what our students have been working on and support the district art programs through the annual SBISD Student Art Auction.

All proceeds will be donated to the Running for the Arts (RFA) event held at Memorial City Mall on May 4. The RFA event is sponsored by Spring Branch Education Foundation. It raises funds to enable SBISD’s elementary and middle school students to go on educational trips to major art venues. Those with the highest bids can pick up their artwork at the mall on the day of the RFA event.

Winners who cannot attend the RFA event will be notified in the week after bidding closes and then will be given instructions for pick up.

For more information please contact Diana Shannon at 713-251-1990 or email her at:
