Donate art supplies for free entry
The Laguna Beach Passport to the Arts team, including Art-A-Fair, Festival of the Arts, Sawdust Art Festival and the Laguna Beach Visitors Bureau, will hold its first Art Supplies Donation Days on Wednesday and Aug. 25, thanks to a grant from Bank of America.
Festival-goers who bring a new or unused art supply valued at $5 or more on either day will receive free admission that day to all three art festivals.
Suggested art supplies to bring in are markers, colored pencils, small journals, sketchpads, sketching pencils, watercolor sets and watercolor pads.
Upon turning in their donated art supply, visitors will receive an embossed wristband that will admit them free of charge on that day to the three festivals. Donations may be turned in at the front entrance at each festival.
