Travel to Learn on the Oregon Coast

Share Article

Head to the ocean and enjoy the beach while you pursue a new interest or re-kindle the flame of a hobby. Single and multi-day hands-on classes will be offered in exciting indoor and outdoor fields like French cooking, ocean harvest and culinary exploration, belly dancing, organic gardening, oil painting, photography, guitar building, or beginning birding. While you enjoy one experience, your travel partner might pursue another. But we’ll arrange enough time for you to share your day during an ocean sunset dinner or a quiet walk on the beach.

"... guests the opportunity to literally get their feet wet by venturing straight to the source to learn how seafood is harvested."

From April 3-16, 2011, Lincoln City on the central Oregon Coast is hosting its inaugural Learning Feast. The two-week event will feature single and multi-day hands-on classes offered in intriguing indoor and outdoor venues. Classes and workshops have been arranged so that guests and their travel partners may enjoy taking the same course or separate workshops while having plenty of time to spend together enjoying the Oregon Coast before and after the day’s lesson.

Throughout the duration of the two-week Learning Feast, guests will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of courses covering a range of interests. Being offered in the first week is a five-day French cooking class designed to tour pupils through the home of one of the world’s most decadent styles of cookery. For those interested in getting out instead, the Beginning Birding and the World of Hawks field trips, hosted by the local Audubon chapter, will begin indoors with species identification and then head to the great outdoors in a region of the United States that features a rich diversity of raptors, shorebirds and songbirds.

The Culinary Center in Lincoln City will offer three classes during the Learning Feast. Each class will offer lectures and demonstrations covering in-depth information and techniques along with opportunities for guests to test out their newly learned skills right in the Center's professional kitchen. The Center's French Cooking and Ocean Harvest workshops will each be 5-day intense hands-on learning experiences, and their afternoon-long 'Two Doughs Many Uses' class will examine a diverse range of uses for two pastry staples. Sharon Wiest, the Executive Chef at the Culinary Center in Lincoln City, a facility that focuses on the abundant foods found in the Pacific Northwest says "[She's] excited to offer our Ocean Harvest class guests the opportunity to literally get their feet wet by venturing straight to the source to learn how seafood is harvested."

For the art lover, we’ve arranged many opportunities in that field, too. From glass fusing to oil painting and freelance writing to photography, art classes make up over half of the twenty-one courses being taught during Lincoln City's spring Learning Feast.
