A great photo opportunity! Artist Drew Brophy, best known for his wild, crazy surfboard designs, will present a free painting demonstration in Carousel Court during South Coast Plaza's Festival of Children celebration.

Children's imaginations will be inspired by Drew's colorful, animated works of art. Kids will be invited to create alongside Drew during his painting demonstration. Art supplies and free stickers will be given to each child in attendance.
