The banners are big, bold and botanical!
An exhibit of banners by Laguna Beach High School students will be on exhibit at Forest and Ocean Gallery downtown May 18 through 21. A free public reception is May 18, 5p.m.-8p.m.
The banners are a project of the Arts in Schools program, presented by LOCA Arts Education. LOCA coordinator Sherry Bullard organized the workshop with LBHS Art Teacher Bridget Porter. Students learned to use dyes to paint on silk as led by clothing expert Olivia Batchelder. More than 20 students created banners, each measuring an impressive 60 inches in length, under a botanical theme.
Attendees at the reception will include Ms. Batchelder, the student artists, and representatives of the Festival of Arts Foundation, which funded the program to LOCA. Forest and Ocean Gallery is at 480 Ocean Ave. Call (949)371-3313
