Beautiful Together @ YAB HQ
We invite you to come to YAB HQ on the evening of July 20th to celebrate our differences and see how we are beautiful together.
We are all creative. The community surrounding the You Are Beautiful project is an incredibly creative and sharing group of individuals, and we want to celebrate this together!
We all are creative in some way or another. Whether you identify as an artist or a designer, someone who uses art for therapy, a maker or a hacker, or even just a tinkerer. No matter how you add your voice or ideas to the world, it’s you — and it’s beautiful.
We believe in making. YAB HQ is our studio, but the dream is that it grows into something more — a community hub of sharing creativity with each other, a place for individuals to play, to try something new, and take risks in a safe space. We’re constantly hosting workshops in our space, to offer a hands-on experience in making.
Now we’ve taken it a step further, and given out YAB DIY boards to anyone who would like to create, experiment, and add their voice to the positive message. The boards have been given to known artists and designers, and also to those just dipping their toe in the waters of creativity. Who knows? For someone starting out, it may be the first piece of what becomes an entire career or side hustle. (After all, You Are Beautiful started as a nights & weekends side project for many years).
We are beautiful. Each of us are incredibly unique and complex (that’s putting it lightly!), and also share so much in common with each other. As we live our lives and grow as individuals, we begin to find our tribe: a community of people who share the same core values as we do, and are also open and engaging with what makes us different.
On Saturday, July 20th from 6-10pm, see many unique boards painted by individuals in our YAB HQ Gallery.
Go into the studio in the back, and get hands on painting your own board or making your own shirt (for purchase).
Be sure to RSVP to get your Beautiful Together Token upon entry!
This all-ages event is open to everyone.
Plus, check out our entire line up of events & workshops during Beautiful Together.

A little bit about Programming at YAB HQ Gallery
Every other month or so, we’ll completely redo the gallery portion of our retail store with brand new work, all related around a new positive message. This is our sandbox; a place to play around with new ideas and concepts. We hope you enjoy the work, and would love to hear what you think.
We offer a variety of Hands-On Workshops from making your own t-shirt and painting your own wood pieces to making your own LED letter, laser cutting, and learning CNC basics. Come and get your hands dirty as you learn more about the process of how we create works in our studio. Be sure to check out our Events Calendar (yab.news) to learn more.
Want to see the behind-the-scenes operation while also learning more about the project and our practice? We offer regularly scheduled FREE Studio Tours. Check out our Events Calendar for upcoming tours.
Have a large group? We can schedule a custom tour or workshop for your school or group. Our tours and workshops can accommodate 10 to 50 people. To schedule, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
