Shark Week Is Almost Here! Celebrate with This Painting Class During the Sharkloahoma Event

Sharklahoma is a collaboration between the Oklahoma Aquarium and the Jenks Chamber of Commerce to celebrate our community and its local businesses, while also raising awareness about the ecological and economic importance of sharks.

Given the importance of sharks to Jenks and beyond, the Jenks Chamber of Commerce met with the Oklahoma Aquarium in 2018 to create a celebration of these sharks and the incredible community where you can see them. The result was "Sharklahoma"-a month-long celebration of all things shark, with events at the Oklahoma Aquarium and several other supportive local businesses throughout Jenks.

The Oklahoma Aquarium is home to the only bull shark exhibit in the Western Hemisphere. With 10 bull sharks on exhibit, it is also the world's largest collection of bull sharks. This exhibit, amongst others, has earned the Oklahoma Aquarium media attention from around the globe. Since opening in 2003, the Oklahoma Aquarium has been a great source of pride and economic growth for the city of Jenks. The bull sharks have also participated in important research projects to help humans and other sharks in captivity.

On, Sunday, July 21st, shark enthusiasts can enjoy a painting class by Pinot’s Palette. The class, Yer’ Gonna Need a Bigger Boat, will be held in the front of the Shark Exhibit at the Oklahoma Aquarium in Jenks. The price of the class includes admission into the aquarium, plus a two-hour painting class. It is going to be a blast!

Pinot's Palette will be “Painting It Forward” with this class and donating 15 dollars from every seat sold to the Oklahoma Aquarium!

At Ridgemont Apartments in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we find it important to attend events that stray from your typical routine. With that being said, we hope that this event will add something unique to your day. Be sure to check it out!
