The Festival of Art (FOA) happens in Laguna Beach over the summer. There is a Junior Art Exhibit which features select pieces from the 1,000 Pieces of Art Exhibition. If your artwork was selected to be part of FOA you will see a green box with a checkmark in the FOA Winner column (the first green box with a checkmark means that piece was selected to be in the 1,000 Pieces of Art Exhibition). More information will be sent to the user email for those pieces of art soon.


The visual arts are an important part of the Imagination Celebration. This exciting exhibition showcases student artwork juried by the county's top art educators and professional artists! 1,000 Pieces of Art is an exceptional display of student artwork chosen from over 4,000 entries from private and public schools, grades pre-kindergarten through high school. These works of art, created by some of the most gifted young people in the Orange County, include drawings, paintings, pastels, prints, mixed media in addition to photography and digital works created entirely on the computer.
