The visual arts and music education teachers at Scappoose High School teamed up to host a student-focused art night featuring the work of more than 100 high school students.

While some artwork was showcased in a large glass display inside the high school’s main entrance, other pieces were exhibited on a long table for closer inspection. Items on the table were auctioned off, with the proceeds of the sale benefiting the art club.

A small sampling of potted plants was also donated for the silent auction, and a donation-based dessert bar was set up at the event.

During the showcase, the school’s jazz choir, chamber choir and all-female ensemble, the Belladonnas, performed for the crowds.
