The Yaquina Art Association is a community-based nonprofit art organization whose primary purpose is to provide art education and promote appreciation of the arts. This is done by providing a variety of tuition-free classes, maintaining a gallery and gift shop for local artists to sell their work, and funding a scholarship program for students in the community. It has been a steady artistic and educational influence in the Lincoln County area since 1947.
Clay or painting? Beginner or advanced? The Yaquina Art Association has a class for you! We’ve been dedicated to making art education fun and accessible to everyone. All of the classes are free to attend and open to anyone who has an interest in arts.
All of our classes are currently offered on a walk-in basis (no registration required). Seats will be filled on a first-come, space available basis.
We offer classes in a wide range of media including:
Colored Pencil & Drawing

All classes are held in the second floor classroom at the Newport Visual Art Center.
