OC HIGH / STUDENT NEWS & VIEWS : Your Imagination

The poster for this year's Imagination Celebration of Orange County was designed by El Modena High School junior Heather Wilson, 17, who has "been drawing since the first moment I learned how to use my left hand."

The event, in its ninth year, kicks off Saturday and then runs continuously April 23 through May 1 at a variety of locations throughout the county. More than 150,000 are expected to participate in the festival, which will include performances by well-known entertainers as well as local bands, orchestras and choirs; art displays and hands-on workshops.

The art festival, designed to encourage creativity in youth is presented by the Orange County Performing Arts Center and the Orange County Department of Education.
