A recent grant from the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts Foundation will allow the Sawdust Art Festival to underwrite a partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach.
The festival, which is in its 48th year and plans to develop its educational programs, will roll out a new pottery wheel ceramics program taught by Sawdust artists and employees.
Fifteen slots are available to students on alternating Fridays from 3 to 5 p.m. At that time, each attendee will be given personal training on throwing pots and also instructed on working with slabs of clay as they glaze and fire their creations.
Emily Murray, art director of the Boys & Girls Club, plans to host an art show at the club's Laguna Canyon Road location later this spring.
"The kids are talking about donating any money they make from the exhibition to local charities," she said in a release.
