An important event during the annual art show is FAMILY DAY. Each year FAMILY DAY provides children the opportunity to make art come alive. This year children engaged in rubber stamp art, cookie decorating, painting on canvas, and pupils of a dance studio showed their dancing skills. On this day, families also had an opportunity to choose their favorite painting in the exhibit which resulted in the selection of the Family Choice Award.

The NOAPS annual exhibit is assembled for the purpose of recognizing artists and their works created in oil and acrylic paint. Works are chosen on the basis of quality with regard to the individual artist's mastery of expression without inclination toward any particular style,school, or technique of painting.
