Laguna Beach High School art students are creating distinctive mixed media art using a laser purchased by donors.

“They are truly inspired; this has made teaching fun again,” said graphic art and design teacher Kerry Pellow, adding that students are keen to apply the tool to ceramics, art, computer art, production art and production design.

The Epilog laser was underwritten by grants from Schoolpower’s endowment, the Festival of Arts Foundation  and school district funding.

“The technology has helped many students look at art in a new way,” said Scott Wittkop, the visual arts department’s  chair.
