THE MY HERO PROJECT RECEIVES GRANT FROM LAGUNA BEACH FESTIVAL OF ARTS FOUNDATION FOR HERO ART WORKSHOPS
LAGUNA BEACH, CA - 06/18/15 - The MY HERO project was awarded funds in the amount of $2000 from the Laguna Beach Festival of Arts Foundation to support media arts education in the Laguna Beach School District. To this end, MY HERO media arts educators worked with students in the digital art and photography classes at Laguna Beach High School to inspire students to submit environmentally themed art and public service announcements to the annual Laguna Hero Fest. Twelve different students' works were selected for exhibition at [seven- degrees] on May 14, 2015 in conjunction with celebrating the Eco Heroes of Laguna Beach that evening. Guests and honorees appreciated the students' creativity and commitment to ecology.
