Paintings by the local artists and students from the weekly Thursday YAA pastel class will be on display in a special Spotlight show October 16-30 at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery in Newport. This gallery is located at 777 NW Beach Dr. (beside the turn-around at Nye Beach). Gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
These informal pastel classes are held weekly on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Students have a wide range of art experience (from beginner to professional artist). There is no age limit. Charlotte Carter teaches this class. She is a long time resident of Newport and an ongoing member of the Yaquina Art Association. She has only one requirement for her classes: "Come prepared to have fun and tap into your inner creative child.”
Pastel classes are just one of the many ongoing free classes provided by the Yaquina Art Association and held at the Visual Arts Center in Newport. The Yaquina Art Association is a local non-profit organization made up of residents from Lincoln County. They donate their services to promote art throughout the local community and educational school system in Lincoln County.
If you would like further information please call the YAA gallery at (541) 265-5133, or visit their website at: www.yaquinaart.org.
