In the meantime, we interviewed Laguna Art Museum's Education Curator Jackie Bunge who runs Imagination Celebration at the Museum.

Laguna Art Museum: How many years have you been running Imagination Celebration?
JB: This will be the third year I have helped with the event, but the second year I will be running it!

Laguna Art Museum: What is your favorite part about Imagination Celebration?
JB: My favorite part of Imagination Celebration is seeing the kids and their families enjoying a day in the Museum, along with all of the hands-on activities and musical performances!

Laguna Art Museum: Do you have a particularly fond memory from a past Imagination Celebration at the Museum?
JB: Yes, I loved watching the face painting last year. The kid’s love face painting and it was great to see their eyes light up when they saw the face painting table! Kids have such wonderful imaginations, so it is always wonderful to hear the designs they ask the face painters for. The best design request last year was a green and red tiger breathing fire while jumping on the moon! Needless to say…the face painters had their work cut out for them!

Laguna Art Museum: What are you looking forward to most for this year’s event?
JB: I am really looking forward to the music performances….they always add so much energy to the event!

Laguna Art Museum: What is your favorite part of your job as Education Curator at Laguna Art Museum?
JB: I love working on public programming, workshops, lecture series and tours. I love that the museum is able to offer so many exciting programs to the surrounding community.

Thanks to Jackie for taking time out of planning for this Saturday's big event to talk to us!

And to all you readers, we hope to see you at the Museum this Saturday armed with new and innovative face painting ideas.
