Feast Arts Center: a New School

Artists and co-parents Todd Jannausch and Chandler Woodfin are in the midst of creating a new art school in Tacoma, WA, called Feast Arts Center. Says Woodfin, a painter, “The guiding concept at Feast is the belief that community involvement enriches personal experience, that personal experience informs art-making, and that art-making strengthens communities.  So how do we do that?  Well, we believe that we achieve this by providing a place where community and art-making can merge.”

The school will provide free community events, including offering free meals, supplies and studio time to those “in need,” says Woodfin, as well as outdoor movie nights and artist lectures.

Additionally, Feast will offer a variety of art classes for youth and adults of all levels taught by local and regional professional artists. The school will also have a gallery for established artists and new emerging artists who may be taking their very first art class.

The duo are looking to raise $25,000 for the school, which will help pay for supplies, renovation and licensing. We ask that you please visit their fundraising page and donate here.
