Laguna Beach Festival of Arts Junior Art Award Ceremony Sunday, August 12th

A jury made up of Mark Porterfield, Steve Chadma, Emma Patton, Pat Sparkuhl and Stephanie Cunningham selected 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners from the more than 300 Orange County students’ work of art on display in the Festival’s Junior Art Exhibit.
Since its inception in 1947, the Junior Art Exhibit has come to be regarded as one of the highlights of the summer show. Selected by art authorities from thousands of submissions representing schools throughout Orange County, works by over 300 students (PK-12) are on display in the Junior Art Gallery. The exhibit has become not only a showcase for new generations of young Orange County student artists but also a vivid testimonial to the value and importance of continuing arts education in our school systems.
