Art Fridays Return to Newport Visual Arts Center
Fall youth arts program includes 11 classes over eight weeks (Oct. 7-Dec. 2)

The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is pleased to release the schedule for the fall 2016 Art Fridays youth arts program. The weekly classes will run from October 7 to December 2, with 11 classes offered during the 8-week session.

The Art Fridays youth arts program started during the 2015-16 school year and enjoys the support of the OCCA Youth Arts Fund and the Nancy Jane Reid Youth Arts Fund, both administered by the OCCA. Art Fridays classes are geared toward middle-school students, though younger and older students are welcome upon prior consultation. Registration fees are $12 per class or $80 for the 8-part series. (Scholarships are available.)

“The fall Art Fridays classes have a strong focus on painting and drawing—areas that students repeatedly have said they enjoy,” says Tom Webb, OCCA VAC Director. “And we have brought in new mediums and practices such as mask-making (clay), collage and montage (paper) and sculpting with wool (fiber).
