Terrific Art Tour by Dolores Colin / Laguna Beach Art
Reviewed July 30, 2012NEW
As part of a corporate meeting and retirement celebration, our Chairman's
wife arranged a ladies' social event which included lunch at a trendy Laguna
Beach restaurant, followed by a tour of the Sawdust Art Festival. We engaged
Certified Tourism Ambassador and Owner of Laguna Beach Art Tours Dolores Colin
to plan the tour. She joined us for lunch, then led the group of twenty on a
gentle walk through the picturesque town to the Sawdust Art Festival - sharing
points of interest and information along the way. Once inside the Festival
grounds, we were joined by her assistant, and she and Dolores introduced the
attendees to several artists, including painters, glass blowers, jewelry
designers, etc. We were encouraged to explore the booths and ask questions, and
many of us made purchases. It was a first-class afternoon, and we got to
experience a Laguna tradition in a casual manner with help and direction from
the tour guides. Great job - Laguna Beach Art Tours.

The Laguna Beach festival summer season may have ended, but have no fear the arts are alive and well in the OC. So if you missed the festivals or didn't get enough, have no fear art events happen weekly around Laguna. And, I apologize for not posting regularly but time flew by and I've been promoting artists, too. Check our Facebook page for art shows, artist calls, and creative escapes in and around LA, the IE or the OC. http://www.facebook.com/LagunaBeachArtTours
Orange County artists are busy creating & building for the Laguna Beach summer art season which begins June 24. I hear many artists including glass blowers & painters, like Dedre Bickler-Sines & Christopher Jeffries, will offer new creations this summer. Reserve a private tour to their home studio or gallery with Laguna Beach Art Tours! Our tours make an ordinary daytrip to Laguna Beach extra-ordinary.
If you're fortunate enough to have Memorial Day off to enjoy a picnic or just relax, remember the day was set aside in 1868 to honor those who sacrificed their lives in military service to protect our freedoms as Americans. And when you
see those pretty little VFW red poppy pins (aka Buddy Poppies), donate a few dollars to keep the program going. http://www.vfw.org/Community/Buddy-Poppy/
