It starts with a dream … a dream of what can be … a free-form process that lets the imagination soar.
It's the birth of an idea, the twist of a thought, the seeds of creative expression freed from critical restraints.
It's the essence of the muse.
Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) birthed a long-held dream this week with the opening of their satellite campus at Big Bend in Laguna Canyon. The 9,500-square-foot facility was completely remodeled to exacting standards during the summer, and provides classroom and laboratory space for college's Visual Communication Division, which includes graphic design, animation, and game art.
The facility rivals that of any art and design campus in the country. I toured the classrooms the day before the campus opened, and my jaw dropped, and a few tears welled in the corner of my eyes. To see what was once merely an idea, made manifest, was exquisite.
