End Summer at the Sawdust Festival

We visited as a guest of the venue

One of the most magical things to do with your kids during the summer is to take them to the Sawdust Festival. This year, I was so busy that I didn’t find time to make it to the festival until last week. While I was at the Sawdust Festival with my younger son, I was reminded of how special it is to spend time with our kids at this special event.

When we first arrived at the Sawdust Festival, my son immediately wanted to do the pottery. He had never done pottery before, and with it being the end of summer, the line was not very long. He put on his apron and sat down with an artist who helped to teach him how to make his very own bowl. I stood outside of the booth smiling because it made me so happy to see him falling in love with art.

Once we were done with the pottery, we walked around and looked at all the beautiful artwork. I purchased some jewelry, and my son got a painting to hang in his bedroom. There are many talented artists at the Sawdust Festival, and all their creativity left us inspired.

After we were done looking at all the different artwork, we attended a workshop with the famous artist Robert Holton. He is well known in the art community for making his cutting edge pop art with a unique drizzle effect. My son was thrilled to have the artist help him to create his own painting complete with a drizzle effect.

We had a full day of fun at the Sawdust Festival, and we ended the day by listening to music and enjoying delicious Mediterranean food at GiGi’s. It was the perfect ending to our day at the Sawdust Festival.

There are only a few days left for your family to experience the Sawdust Festival before it closes for the year. Bring your kids this weekend to enjoy the unique art experience. The Sawdust Festival is open until September 3rd. It is located at 935 Laguna Canyon Rd, Laguna Beach, CA 92651.
