To celebrate the official day on which the original Laguna Beach Art Association was founded in 1918, the Laguna Art Museum has invited LPAPA as one of its Community Arts Partners to join the LBAA Birthday Party celebration this Saturday, Aug 25, with a LPAPA Paint Out En Plein Air at Heisler Park. The Paint Out event will begin at 9 a.m. with artists painting en plein air throughout Heisler Park. This is a free outdoor event presented in collaboration with the museum’s LBAA Birthday Party Celebration that starts at 10 a.m. with free docent-led exhibition tours at the museum. 

Join LPAPA at the Laguna Art Museum for the birthday celebration and cake (1 - 2 p.m.). Then starting at 2 p.m., there will be family activities provided by the Community Arts Partners (2 - 5 p.m.). LPAPA will be there with an opportunity for you to step back in time, and become part of Laguna’s artistic legacy and plein air painting tradition all captured in a complimentary photo memory for you. Plan to start your Saturday in Heisler Park at 9 a.m. for the LPAPA Paint Out, then enjoy a full day of art activities at the museum celebrating this historic milestone.
