|Art lovers in the Wilsonville area have a unique opportunity to indulge their passion while supporting art education at the Charbonneau Arts Festival this weekend http://charbonneauartsfestival.com/new/. The event kicks off Saturday with an evening of music and art featuring Michael Allen Harrison in concert at the Charbonneau Country Club. What makes the festival different is that student artists will be displaying their work in a special student art pavilion. WHS art teacher Christopher Shotola-Hardt selected about 30 students to show their work.The money the WHS art program receives from the show will mostly be used to pay entry fees to a nationwide competition, the Scholastic Art Show, according to Shotola-Hardt. “It’s because of the Charbonneau Festival that we’re able to do that,” he said.
