About our Student Artists

2023 Student Art Show

We had an outstanding exhibit from Wilsonville and Canby High School art students. It was well attended by the public as 450 ballots were cast for The Best of Show, first, second and third place. There were 14 adult volunteers recruited and six student volunteers from Wilsonville and Canby High School. There were also painting demonstrations by students and by Wilsonville art teacher, Angennette Escobar.

Budding Talents

Each year our festival includes a gallery devoted to student art work.  It always impresses the public to see their creativity and talent.  Several students each year sit in the gallery and work on an art project as a demonstration of their skills.  Students also serve as docents in their gallery as well as pitch-in elsewhere during our three-day event.  

Supporting Our Student Artists

After our 2018 Art Festival, we donated $4,000 to each school and the teachers made wonderful use of the extra funds. 

They bought equipment, took field trips, and entered regional competitions that would not have been available otherwise.
