About this Event

Creative WorkspaceA 12-week class

Part art-making class, part creative project accountability group, Creative Workspace is for artists and wannabe artists of all disciplines. This is not a technique class. Nope. Technique is useful, but it's not the thing that lights my fire. Ideas are what really get me going.

Through weekly assignments and in-class exercises, we explore a million different ways to spark imagination, and we dig into questions like, “What do I want to say with my art?” “What do I want to be putting into the world?” and “How can I use art to respond to what's going on around me or process what I'm experiencing?”

Sound heavy? Yeah, sometimes it is. We also do a lot of laughing, writing, wondering, moving, discovering, breathing, drawing, reading, watching, listening, and a little crying. Artists whose work we've looked at for inspiration in past sessions include Toni Morrison, Lynda Barry, Amy Sherald, Jad Abumrad, Yoko Ono, Miranda July, Hannah Gadsby, and Beyoncé.

We'll spend the first half of the session making as many different things as possible, without being too precious about it. The goal in the first 6 weeks is just to be productive, and to let our internal editors take a rest. For the second 6 weeks, each person will choose one project or piece to focus on and develop for our final showing, with the help of constructive feedback from the group.



Spring Session:
Online Wednesdays April 27 – July 13
6-8pm Pacific Time via Zoom
+ an in-person final showing in Seattle

$150-$450 - Registration is sliding scale to support equitable access. Wanna try it out first? There's a $20 preview class on April 20! To register...sign up

By registering for this class, you're making a commitment to yourself and to the other participants! We get to build relationship and trust as a group so that we can support each other through this process. For these reasons, attendance is important! If you know that you would need to miss more than 2 class meetings, we're going to ask you to wait until this is offered again. We need to be able to be there for each other and for ourselves.

Note: Your email will be shared with Jenna the event curator for follow-up purposes only and will not be sold. You may also be added to the Abbey Arts email list which has an easy single click opt-out option.



ABOUT THE FACILITATOR:

Hi! I'm Jenna Bean Veatch. I'm a multi-disciplinary performing artist and queer single-mama-by-choice who has been accused of creating “pure, unadulterated, heart-stopping whimsy.” (Thanks, Bret Fetzer.)

I've made dance-theater shows, stop-action animation, music, written work, prompts, pants, community gatherings, and one gorgeous little human. I'm also the creator and host of The Not-Creepy Gathering for People Who Want to Fall In Love, a participatory event designed to facilitate connection and spread love.

My work has been supported by Artist Trust, 4Culture, the Seattle Mayor's Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, and the Bossak/Heilbron Charitable Foundation. I hold an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts & Creative Inquiry from the California Institute of Integral Studies.
