About this event

Creative Workspace

A 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.

Winter Session:

Online Wednesdays January 19 – April 6

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 January 12! To register...sign up HERE

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, we've got one full scholarship available! If you want to participate in this class but don't have the financial means to do so, email to tell us a little bit about who you are and why you want to be a part of this!

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.

Organizer Abbey Arts Presents

Organizer of Creative Workspace - a 12 Week Class

COVID Public Health Safety Info:

As of December, 2021

Welcome back Abbey Arts family!

As we reopen the doors to our venues, rest assured that we will be welcoming our patrons back in to an environment that prioritizes health and wellness. We are working with local officials to ensure current health and safety protocols are in place at Abbey Arts events, while being mindful that flexibility will be required as those guidelines will likely continue to evolve. Obviously with COVID-19 not being completely eradicated, we’ll have to change some things around here as we go. Please consult the state’s guidelines for the most up-to-date information.

IMPORTANT INFO

  • There is a statewide mask mandate for requiring masks for ALL patrons indoors REGARDLESS of vaccine status. More information from the State of Washington can be found here.
  • Starting 7/30/21 We are now requiring a government issued photo ID* and PROOF OF VACCINATION or a NEGATIVE COVID-19 PCR test result within 72 hours prior to the event to be allowed to enter the building. Find a testing center here. Please note that test results may take 24-48 hours. Please plan accordingly.
      • Full vaccination is defined as having received a final vaccination dose at least two weeks prior to the event date.
      • The name on your vaccination card or COVID test MUST match your state ID
      • Acceptable forms of proof of vaccination include: an official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or a picture of your vaccination card; a digital or printed WA State Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination; a WA State Immunization Information System printout; or a verified medical record printout from a medical provider.
      • *In addition to providing proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test, guests 18 or older must present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. Guests younger than 18 may present a government-issued photo ID or a school photo ID as an alternative. Guests younger than 18 who do not have either a government-issued ID or school photo ID can only attend performances in the company of an adult who provides the required ID and vaccine documentation for themselves and can also provide documentation for the minor’s test results or vaccination verification.
  • All employees are fully vaccinated and are required to wear masks indoors.
  • We are operating at mid capacity to allow more space and smaller crowds.
  • We have increased hand sanitizing stations around the venues. We encourage you to regularly sanitize and fully wash hands when you use the restroom.

NOT FEELING WELL?

Please do not enter the venue if you have a fever, are feeling sick, or displaying any symptoms of COVID-19, flu, cold or other transmissible diseases. Better yet, stay home, rest up, take care of yourselves and reduce the chance of getting others sick. If you’ve purchased a ticket to an upcoming show but come down with symptoms, please open your Eventbrite account and you can request a refund for a health related reason through Eventbrite system. We’d be happy to oblige, no questions asked. No refunds given after the event. Thanks!

HOW ABOUT MASKS?

Masks are currently required while indoors regardless of vaccine status. You may remove your mask while actively consuming a beverage, but we ask that you reapply your mask and continue to wear it throughout the performance.

****

By entering the Venue, you and the members of your group voluntarily assume the risks of contracting COVID-19 and agree to release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue any Artist performing or Abbey employee or company (including their owners, officers, employees, volunteers, agents and the City of Seattle), and hold these entities and persons harmless from liability regarding any and all claims relating to COVID-19 and indirectly or directly arising out of or relating to the Venue or event.

****

Thanks for your ongoing cooperation and support and for helping us keep live music LIVE!

Individual events may have additional safety measures in place, see Ticketing pages for details.

No refunds if ticket buyer is unable to show proof of vaccine or negative test verification.
