Families will enjoy a fun-filled day of hands-on art projects led by members of LOCA, face painting, refreshments, and more.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to view the Museum's current professional exhibitions (OsCene 2010: Contemporary Art and Culture in OC, and Artists in California, Early Twentieth Century: From the Permanent Collection), and current student exhibition (Plaster Friezes of the OC created by 3rd grade students from St. Mary's School, Aliso Viejo).
Musical performances will take place every hour by musicians from local schools.
This year's hands-on art projects will focus on upcycling which is the practice of taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater use and value. The term "upcycling" was coined by William McDonough and Michael Braungart, authors of Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things.Hands-on Art Projects and FacilitatorsColleen Corbett, Lagoonie Aliens
