Westwind is located within Oregon’s coastal rain forest and often draws artists from far and wide due to its natural and rugged beauty. Even on a rainy day, Westwind provides beautiful scenery and resources to both inspire and create art.

It is not uncommon for September to bring the best weather to the Oregon coast. Clear blue skies and late summer light make for a spectacular backdrop for artisan projects and exploring Westwind’s incomparable landscape.

Learn new skills and make a finished product under the expert guidance of professional artists and art instructors. Select a project of your interest and spend a beautiful weekend at Westwind exploring it further. All levels of experience (or inexperience) are welcome!
