Outreach

The arts have been an integral part of Laguna Beach for more than 100 years, distinguishing it from other beach towns in Southern California. From visual arts to theater, opera and ballet, the town was an early adapter of the culture that would later bring it worldwide renown. The Festival of Arts has played an integral role in reinforcing that art colony identity  through the organization’s dedication to outreach programs and arts education.

Artist Fund

During the summer, a variety of arts programs and classes are offered at the Festival of Arts for artists of all ages and skill level. The Festival of Arts Foundation supports local organizations and young artists with its scholarship and grant programs. The Artists Fund is a non‐profit organization which assists Festival artists who are unable to work because they have suffered an unforeseen hardship.
