There are no limits if you are a kid visiting the Festival of Arts this summer. Fun and creativity take precedence over instruction throughout a series of classes and workshops sponsored by the festival. Presented with the materials and an opportunity to go wherever their minds take them, kids are encouraged to be their own artist. All classes are taught by exhibitors who volunteer their time, festival spokesperson Sharbie Higuchi said. "The kids love it; it's a chance for them to do things they don't normally do," she said.

Pamela Martinez approached Sarina Shohet with a proposition late last year. "I said to Sarina, 'Can I give you a really difficult assignment?'" Martinez recalled. "She said, 'Yes.'" Students in Martinez's Advanced Placement art class at Irvine-based Tarbut V'Torah drew a single portrait for the project. But Sarina drew two - one on white paper and the second on a differently textured brown sheet. The final graphite sketch, which depicts a friend whose parents are in the throes of a divorce, was titled "Cognizance of Her Teenage Psyche.

Children at the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach took recycling to a new level Monday afternoon. Using everyday items made of plastic, such as bottle caps and laundry detergent container tops, kids created their own robots, or "plastikobots," during the Child Creativity Lab's kickoff workshop. The Child Creativity Lab is a startup mobile nonprofit designed to stir children's imaginations and strengthen their problem-solving skills. Founder Peter Chang worked 10 years in business and marketing but changed careers as he raised two children, ages 3 and 5. "The kids gave me the stimulation to go after something related to them," the Irvine resident said.

Rebecca Faubion believes in Laguna Beach. The 35-year-old has lived in other parts of Orange County, but her connection to the beach town where she now resides is like no other. Faubion is an artist - an enthusiast of all things creative - and she is drawn to the arts city's soul, which she says pulsates beneath its "resort-town glitter. " It is this heritage - this sense of building on the work of other pioneering artists - that inspired the mother of one to establish Artful Everyday in her hometown last April.

It sounds like the setup for a movie about an aspiring Broadway star: Young hopeful moves to competitive cultural mecca, gets bartending job to pay the bills, passes demanding audition and soon has people congregating on the sidewalk to get a glimpse of her through the window. Replace Broadway with the Laguna Beach art scene, and it's also the story of Nichole McDaniel, whose work has hung at the Village Gallery since May. "If it's something that you're passionate about and you love, I feel that you have to at least give it that shot, which is where I'm at in what I'm doing," the artist said Friday inside the gallery, where her latest stencil-in-progress occupied the long table by the window.

The weekend before it began my van was packed so full of gear I had to buy a roof rack to accommodate more. Plus there were the four bikes hitched to the back. I was headed to Burning Man for the fourth time, that annual pilgrimage in the parched Black Rock desert northeast of Reno known for its public nudity, radical exhibitionism and all-night drug- and sex-filled parties. It's all of that, of course, but much more. Even with the past experiences, it never seems to get easier.

Read this story carefully; part of it could make its way into Bette McIntire's next work of art. For the past seven years, the Laguna Beach artist has worked predominantly with pages of the Los Angeles Times. The language is "rich" and the font is eye-catching, McIntire said. As soon as the paper lands on her driveway, she begins on the front page and meanders through news and sports, leaving the Calendar section - her favorite - for last. Words that pop out during her daily perusal go into a notebook.

Frank Daniel is one of a lucky few who have never been struck by the urge to sneeze, twitch or swat an unassuming bug, at least while on stage. This matters - why? Daniel, 69, a Laguna Beach native, has, for the past quarter-century, donned the garb, makeup and hairpiece of Jesus Christ before freezing for 90 seconds amid apostles as depicted in Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper. " This piece marks the yearly finale of the Pageant of the Masters, which honors iconic art in the form of living pictures, or tableaux vivantes . Currently in its 80th year, the pageant will be hosted nightly July 7 through Aug. 31. "Every once in a while, I feel like I'm going to sneeze before we're about to go up," Daniel said, laughing.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Add in sun-drenched days filled with birdsong and hillsides covered in green. More than just a few of my favorite things, these glories make up parts of the fullness of life. Rain falls on the roof as I sit in the early morning darkness counting my blessings. Lately, I've been wearing a lot of hats and juggling time to get everything done. These "wee" hours are peaceful bits that feel all mine and I love them. Small sounds are magnified in the relative lack of sound.
