One of our favorite summer traditions is taking a little trip to Laguna Beach and having fun at the different summer art festivals. The Sawdust Art Festival is our favorite. We try to visit at least once, but usually wind up going back more than once because our entire family has so much fun.
There are a variety of classes for both children and adults. Last year both kids had the opportunity to try their hand at the potter’s wheel and created their own little pots. They had so much fun and it was super cheap. The class is free, and all you have to do is pay for the firing/glazing.
The Children’s Art Festival offer a variety of free projects for the little ones. The classes for adults and children older than 6 are either free or there is a small fee for materials. I’ve really wanted to take a jewelry making class and hopefully I can take one in August.
We love the festival and I know you will too. It’s fun for the entire family. There is live music, food, and features more than 200 local artists. To check out the schedule of classes head here.
The Summer Sawdust Festival runs through September 1st, and is open everyday from 10am to 10pm. For additional info head here.
