  • Logan Penney

    Logan Penney is a ceramics and multimedia artist specializing in interactive art with a passion for teaching and all things creative. Nature is a constant inspiration for him; you can find Logan walking around Walla Walla or in the kitchen, always looking for new ideas. Creativity, to Logan, means stepping out of our comfort zones, challenging ourselves to look at the world differently, and being kind to ourselves and others to recognize that we are all capable of making art.

    With a MS in early childhood administration from Bank Street College of Education and a BA in studio art from Kenyon College, Jean has worked with people of all ages. She has been a docent at both the Portland and Seattle Art Museums and has used art activities in the galleries to help investigate the exhibitions. Jean teaches art and art history from a process approach where students learn by doing.
