As one of the charter members of the Yaquina Art Association, artist Jeanne Cloe painted with enthusiasm during Monday’s watercolor class at the Newport Visual Arts Center.

“After all these years, I’m still an amateur,” she said.

Cloe began painting with the group in 1947, when its members numbered around 11. In 1952, the group established itself as the Yaquina Art Association and received its nonprofit status. This year, the group is 127 members strong.

YAA encourages people to explore their artistic side, offering classes four days a week. In addition to Monday’s watercolor class, there’s photography, oil and acrylic, painting on china, clay, colored pencil and pastels.

Classes are free, offered year round and open to everyone. Drop ins are welcome.

“This is open to encourage arts in the community, whether you live here or not,” said Ken Hartwell, YAA president.
