One short block later, turn left under Nye Beach archway. Proceed straight to Nye Beach turnaround and parking lot. The VAC is the large blue and gray building off the turnaround. To director offices and upper parking lot: turn west of Hwy. 101 at NW 3rd St. Head down hill. At second stop sign, continue straight 1.5 blocks, with the Sylvia Beach Hotel remaining on your left. The VAC administrative offices can be accessed through the smaller, upper parking lot.

Event Description:

Develop your young artist’s creative skills and interests. Reinforce habits of creativity. Have fun! Art Camp will include a variety of activities and projects, resulting in a public exhibit of student artwork at the Newport Visual Arts Center. Hands-on art making (drawing, sculpture) will be reinforced through presentations on foundational art concepts (color theory, perspective, materials) and outdoor adventures to visit public artworks. Campers will work with various media and tools. Campers start by designing their personal VAC Art Camp T-Shirt and move onto filling their sketchbooks with drawings of the Nye Beach neighborhood.

Registration: $200 (scholarships available); Supplies included (sketch book, portfolio, drawing pencils, T-shirt). Snacks and refreshments included; brown bag lunch NOT included; Class limit: 15
