Laguna Beach High School art students have a new tool in their arsenal that grants them access to a deeper level of complexity in their work. Since fall, students in Kerry Pellow's graphic arts and design class have used the Epilog Laser to etch and carve into wood, acrylic and fabric. The machine connects to a computer and recreates the on-screen design on the chosen medium. Grants from SchoolPower and the Festival of Arts Foundation funded the laser, which looks like a copy machine with a glass door that offers a view of the laser beam in action.
