Presented by Mesa Arts Center, Powered by Creative Catalysts. This series is presented in partnership with and coordinated by [nueBOX].


The Well Fed Artist Workshop Series enlists local creatives to share their experiences working in the arts and to teach strategies and skills that can help other artists and entrepreneurs develop as creative professionals in their field. This season follows a theme of DIY production and presentation, with workshops that will empower attendees to use the skills and connections they gain in each session to go out and put more of their work (and themselves!) into the world.
