If that new day planner is looking a little bare, the Artists’ Studio Association in Lincoln City has the solution — a new slate of classes that will keep artists of all levels learning new skills right through ‘till spring.
Classes are held in the ASA classroom at 620 NE Hwy. 101, next door to the Artists’ Co-op Gallery. The gallery and the classroom are ADA accessible and parking is available in the rear of the building.
ASA membership is $30 per year and entitles members to discounts on class fees.
