On Tuesday, March 14, the Laguna Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) invited the community to a “Celebration of the Arts,” its annual showcase of student visual and performing arts talent at Laguna Beach High School.

Students in grades K-12 participated in the arts festival to showcase their work across many artistic disciplines. The event featured live performances from students in theater, choir, wind and string ensembles, the jazz band and dance. The evening also included an art exposition, sale, digital art and film exhibit. 

Performances began at 6 p.m. in the Artists Theater and continued throughout the event as audiences visited different stations on the high school campus to connect with community partners, including the Laguna College of Art + Design, Laguna Art Museum, Festival of the Arts, No Square Theatre and Coast Film & Music Festival.
