Imagination Celebration



April 24, 2010
11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
A fun-filled day for the entire family!

Admission is FREE thanks to a donation from the Arts Council, a support group of Laguna Art Museum. Reservations are not required.

Families will enjoy a fun-filled day of hands-on art projects led by members of Laguna Outreach for Community Arts (LOCA), face painting, refreshments, and more.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to view the Museum's current professional exhibitions (OsCene 2010: Contemporary Art and Culture in OC, and Artists in California, Early Twentieth Century: From the Permanent Collection), and current student exhibition (Plaster Friezes of the OC created by 3rd grade students from St. Mary's School, Aliso Viejo).

Musical performances will take place every hour by musicians from local schools including The St. Mary's Drumline.

This year's hands-on art projects will focus on upcycling which is the practice of taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater use and value.

Hands-on Art Projects and Facilitators

Colleen Corbett, Lagoonie Aliens
Create your own alien and spaceship sculptures with recycled cans, tubes and sprials. Add googly eyes and have some out-of-this-world fun!

Mike Tauber, Tiki Totems
Create a sculptural head of a tiki figure. Start with a cardboard cylinder, add fringy hair, noodley eyes and mouth, and draw on face paint for good luck. Add a feather to make it fun.

Reem Khalil, Ear
th Bags
Create a bag by upcycling fabrics, newspapers, string and more!

Suzette Rosenthal, Creative Collage
Have fun taking various bits of paper ‘trash'-wrapping paper, candy wrappers, magazine cutouts, security envelopes-and turning them into a one-of-a-kind visual expression of yourself!
