LAGUNA BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 16, 2012) - It's the most kid-centric day of the summer art season -- Family Art Day at the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts! On Saturday, July 21st from 12pm-3pm, parents and children will be treated to exciting adventures in art... compliments of the Festival of Arts.

Family Art Day is all about the children. Art projects in ceramics and mixed media are specifically designed for the younger ones, art scavenger hunts, ceramics, marionette shows, balloon art and face painting will entertain young minds and ignite the imagination. New this year, guests will have the opportunity to express their creativity while stringing together their very own Kūpe'e, a Hawaiian bracelet or anklet, presented by Aulani (A Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii). Also new in 2012 will be the opportunity to make prints rolled out right in front of the Festival of Arts by a 44,000-pound steamroller! If that's not enough, all children will be treated to a special kid-friendly snack from Gina's Alfresco. Even Mom and Dad will get to enjoy live musical entertainment by Shelby, Tieg & Tara.

When children arrive, they will be given a booklet containing coupons that they'll get to redeem for the different projects and attractions. It's a small touch that makes even the littlest attendees feel like Family Art Day is especially for them, which it is. Plus, children 12 and under receive free admission to the Festival of Arts.

"Family Art Day is always a favorite day at the Festival," said Susan Davis, director of special events for the Festival of Arts. "If your family has never participated, this is the year to do it, because this year's Family Art Day is going to be the best one yet!"
