The start of spring is such a joyous feeling. The sun begins to shine, the surf is up, and the Laguna art scene is Beginning to come in strong. There are many events in Laguna to see all the different arts, which include sculptures, glass blowing, paintings, and more. If you are wanting just a little more than just to view the art, The Sawdust Studio Art Classes are a great way to show your artistic side. Create your own keepsake!

Bring the little ones too, with the Kids art studio. Kids’ Art Studio is a hands-on art-making program offered by Laguna Art Museum on a drop-in basis on the third Sunday of every month between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. Children and their families create a piece of art from start to finish, inspired by one of the exhibitions on view in the museum. Art projects are designed for all ages and are supervised by members of the Laguna Art Museum Arts Council. All materials are provided.

If you rather let the art be done by the professionals, we also have a something just for you. Go on a journey for an intimate glimpse into the homes and studios of twelve Orange County fine artists.

Situated along the South Orange County coastline, this collection of talent showcases painters, sculptors, photographers, pastel, mixed media, glass and jewelry artists. All of whom will welcome visitors with a rare behind-the-scenes peek into their lives and work spaces.
