Back to Class: Student Visit at JTD

A few weeks ago, our studio hosted the Advanced-Level Ceramics class from a local high school. Jen shared her journey from installation artist to Owner & Creative Director of Jen Talbot Design. She also shared tips about how you can make a living by utilizing your creativity and passion. We even broke out the slide projector so the students could see Jen’s early work as a studio artist and understand her path to her current career in design.

Jen also discussed the benefits of how the students can access their innate gifts when considering their career or next steps.

When we take a moment to reflect on our early experiences and identify when we’ve felt true joy, it can help uncover our true purpose, talents, and desires. As children, we were completely free and unadulterated by society pressures and youthfully blind to what we should be doing and thinking. There is so much power in returning to this kind of thinkingwhether as  high school students considering their futures, to professionals at any age considering their next chapter.

It was a great day supporting the next generation of creatives!!
