Though their successful summer run may be winding down, Laguna Beachs Festival of Arts still has a few more events up its beautifully adorned sleevesuch as the Coffee and Conversations with Artists workshop. For the past several weeks, Thursday mornings have been an exchange of creative ideas, an outpouring of artistic knowledge, and a heavy supply of the fuel that fires many an artistic expression: coffee. Festival guests are encouraged to take part in discussions and ask artists about their craft. Topics cover a variety of subjects; this weeks theme is Where Do These Ideas Come From? The gathering will be hosted by several artistsone of whom is the Festivals own Kathy Jones, an oil painter whose abstract figures aim to surprise and inspire. Following the session will be a tour of the Festivals grounds.
