Every visitor has their own reasons for visiting the Central Oregon coast and staying in one of our vacation rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Pacific Northwest, if not the world. The coastline offers an endless variety of activities that families, couples, singles and groups of all sorts can enjoy. Or, visitors can simply use our Oregon beach vacation rentalsas an excuse to kick back and relax with some amazing views right outside the front door. But what about doing both? With many artistic and cultural activities that attract locals and tourists alike, many visitors also find that it’s the perfect place to stay entertained and enlightened while enjoying a completely relaxing holiday. These are just a few of the art and culture offerings on tap in Lincoln City this summer:
Immerse Yourself in Glass Art
Lincoln City is known for its glass art, both on the beach and in the town. If you’re here between mid-October and Memorial Day, you may just find a hand-crafted glass float along the city’s 7½ miles of public beach as part of the “Finders Keepers” promotion. But not to worry if you miss the glass floats, because there are artisans making, sharing and teaching visitors about their glass art throughout Lincoln City year-round. Mor Art Glass Fusing Studio offers classes where students can learn how to create their own fused glass pieces, and leave at the end of the day with their own unique work of art. Or if you’re not in the mood to create your own art, Jennifer Sears Glass Art Studio offers live demonstrations and a variety of glass floats and other artwork for sale, in addition to opportunities for visitors to create their own pieces.
More Local Art Opportunities
If glass art isn’t your thing, or if you’ve already finished immersing yourself in the local glass scene, not to worry. There are still plenty of other opportunities to peruse, purchase and create art of all sorts in Lincoln City, Oregon. The Lincoln City Cultural Center is a good place to start, as this public venue offers classes on sculpting, painting, and the creation of textile art. Or, if you’re more interested in the intersection of art and ecology, you might prefer the teachings offered at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. The Artists’ Studio Association also offers a welcoming and cheerful environment to take art classes and purchase budget-friendly materials to continue your work at home. So get out there and start creating!
