Sketch Newport Coast

Sketch Newport Coast UPDATE: Due to an ailing family member we have returned to Southern California, and we're forced to suspend our Oregon tours for the remainder of the year. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

We're bringing plein air sketching and watercolor painting to our local community of Newport, OR.

We spend so much of our time in the fall and winter adventuring up and down the coast, that combining both passions for painting and the outdoors right here in our backyard is not only a logical decision but an absolute necessity. 

Sure we love visiting our friends in Portland to participate in Urban Sketching events around their digs, but having to commit to a 2+ hour drive up north to join in their fun seems like a wasted opportunity to enjoy all that surrounds us here around Yaquina Bay.

In Newport, a year-round working bay and gorgeous tourism area for close to if not more than 100 years, we know we have what adventurers are looking for. 

Although it can be chilly for this time of year, that has never stopped us from getting out there and sketching all types of scenes regardless of the weather.

We bring to you the creation of Sketch Newport Coast!

  • We provide everything you need to sketch and paint in watercolor, including a custom watercolor sketchbook of your choice to keep.
  • You can book your watercolor experience through our embedded AirBNB tool below or click through to check us out through your Airbnb account directly. Book an art tour right through this link today.
  • So whether you're a novice, enthusiast, or glorified expert artist, come join the fun and paint the sites of this glorious coastal community with us.
