Instructors:

Teaching Artist Angela Korbe

Angela Korbe

Profile Teaching Artist Jana Whatley

Jana Whatley

Jana is a recent Houston, TX transplant living in Fayetteville, AR. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the University of Houston in 2014. An artist in her own right, she dominantly works using sculptural installation, video, photography, and performance. She has held professional positions as a teaching artist, art curriculum coordinator, consultant, community event organizer, caregiver, and director in early childhood education settings for about ten years cumulatively. Jana is a Jack of all trades with an aptitude for ways and means.

She is interested in the idea that “necessity is the mother of invention.” When options are limited, and the emphasis is placed on problem-solving and exploration, the discovery is often much more interesting and meaningful. Jana also has a personal understanding of how freedom for creative expression and connection to a community can impact a person’s development. From her experiences, she has learned that an excellent path toward a quality life is access to and connection with community arts organizations. In seeking these institutions out, Jana has found resources that would have otherwise been inaccessible to her. Her varied experiences with teaching, leadership, performance, sculpture, and theatre have been a source of encouragement for the growth of both her practice and person. These shared values are what brought Jana to CCC’s doorstep.

Teaching Artist Sam Dowd

Sam Dowd

Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Sam Dowd earned a BFA from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and an MFA from Kansas State University where he met his wife, Jenny.

Passionate about art as a career, he and Jenny moved frequently, teaching and producing art for shops, galleries, and fairs across the country. Landing in Jackson, Wyoming in 2007, Sam served as the Ceramics and Sculpture Manager for the Art Association of Jackson Hole, and in 2010, he and Jenny launched Dowd House Studios. Sam has also been involved in several public art installations, including mounting a 16’ kinetic steel canoe over a state highway and installing his clay sculpture, “Glimpse”, on the grounds of the Center for Arts in Jackson. While in Jackson, Sam also managed many successful community art programs for kids and adults and curated multiple shows and workshops.

In 2021, Sam and Jenny relocated to NWA to open their Prairie Grove studio and fulfill their dream of becoming full-time potters. With a passion for sharing his experiences and work with his new community, Sam and Jenny have been members of the Community Creative Center’s Open Studio program since spring and are active supporters of community arts programming in NWA.
