A 12-Week Collaboration between
THE NEST & JENNA BEAN VEATCH
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 Jenna's fire. Ideas are what really get her 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?”
Wanna know what to expect?
The goal in the first 6 weeks is just to be productive, and to let our internal editors 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.
The 12 weeks will culminate in a final showing for invited guests.

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.
