Students mentored at Art Walk
The annual collaboration between Laguna College of Art & Design and First Thursday's Art Walk member galleries culminates from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday when 15 Laguna Beach galleries, volunteering as mentors, will feature original works by LCAD's Fine Arts seniors during the Art Walk.
The students will be present at each gallery exhibiting their work, which is available for sale. Sale proceeds will benefit student artists and the Art Walk Scholarship Fund.
Established by Art Walk member and LCAD professor Robin Fuld, the Professional Student/Gallery Mentoring Program pairs senior students in the Fine Arts Professional Studies class with First Thursday's professional art galleries and is designed to demonstrate the business of operating a gallery and professionally exhibiting artwork.
The program includes hands-on work with representatives from the galleries whose expertise helps guide the students and to broaden the scope of their art world experience, according to the college.
