Designed for people who are interested in the Creative Workspace class, but want to check it out before committing to the full experience! You'll get a taste of the types of exercises you'll do and have an opportunity to ask questions. Participants who take this course and want to sign up for the full-length Creative Workspace course will receive a $20 discount on the Creative Workspace registration fee.

Creative Workspace is part art-making class, part creative project accountability group, and is for artists and wannabe artists of all disciplines. This is not a technique class, but more so a class on what lights your fire. Join artist Jenna Bean Veatch in the classroom monthly January through April, and in between, to keep the momentum going and to stay engaged with your art and with your classmates, you'll post weekly assignments online. It'll all culminate in an art show of student work. To view more course details and a more detailed description, check out the course listing here.

You will supply everything you need to make your own art.

After registration, course details are available via the Northwind Art School learning portal, including course syllabus and supply information. Learn more

Jenna Bean Veatch is a multi-disciplinary performing artist and teacher who has been accused of creating “pure, unadulterated, heart-stopping whimsy.” She makes dance-theater shows, stop-action animation, music, written pieces, and delightful objects.

Her work is invitational and experiential. Her first show, Sideshow, inspired by old-fashioned circus sideshows, drew her audience into a dream world, populated by characters like The Tree Man, who had branches growing from his palms which bloomed when he fell in love. Her music videos are funny and then sometimes surprisingly sad, simultaneously kitschy and heartbreaking. Her current project is The Not-Creepy Gathering for People Who Are Single and Want to Fall In Love, a participatory event designed to facilitate connection. Her secret agenda at each of these events is to gently take participants by the hand and walk them into a space of vulnerability, because vulnerability makes way for connection – but she does it slyly. Her charm and wit are infectious and disarming, which lends itself well to work that is quirky and moving, playful and powerful.
