Sawdust Art Classes

Sawdust Art Classes serves a unique population of both local and visiting patrons, providing art classes in a variety of different mediums while also highlighting the artistic history of Laguna Beach. Our classes are held on the Festival grounds, giving you the opportunity to experience the magic of Sawdust off-season whilst our Artists teach their craft hands-on. The classes are usually small and last about two hours. All materials are provided in the cost of the class and, unless otherwise specified, absolutely no experience is necessary! All we ask is that you bring enthusiasm, a desire to learn and to have fun!

We are also able to offer Group and Corporate classes; if you are interested in finding out more, please email us at: We look forward to welcoming you to the magic of the Sawdust Art Class program!
