Event Description:

Following the successful launch of the new Art Fridays program at the Newport Visual Arts Center (VAC) during the 2015-16 school year, the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts and its Youth-Arts Advisory Group are hosting an open house from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, to share plans for the upcoming fall and winter Art Fridays class sessions.

Instructors will be on hand to share demonstration projects, and a hands-on art table will provide an interactive experience for students and adults alike. Guided tours of the VAC, and, weather permitting, outdoor music and chalk mural drawing will be included.

Student artwork from previous Art Friday classes will be displayed. Attendees can be the first to register for the upcoming Art Fridays classes, learn more about the VAC, meet partner organizations and sign up for various volunteer opportunities in the building. 

Special thanks to the OCCA Youth-Arts Advisory Group: Ellen Hertel, Peter Lawson, Laurie Sanders, Janet Webster (chair), Paula Wenell and Veronica Willemin. For more information, contact OCCA VAC Director Tom Webb at 541-265-6569 or email
