Sarah Jones (B. 1990) is a self-taught artist, with a studio practice in Washington, D.C. In her youth, she recognized a sense of familiarity with the arts, and constantly found ways to cultivate that creative desire. Jerome Jones, her father and a talented painter, was her model of perfection on the canvas. She started her professional career in the culinary field as a pastry chef and obtained a degree in business. All the while continuing to translate those experiences into growing her artistic craft. She uses her knowledge from her culinary training to develop unconventional artists methods and push the limits. Texture and culture are weaved into her art through the inspirations of her world travels and the wonders of nature. She is currently a full time artist and facilitates instructional sessions on painting and sculpting through various platforms. She is also passionate about donating her craft to organizations that facilitate positive change throughout the world.


The Eastern Market Art Series & Teachings – EAST – is an ongoing series that brings artists and children (between 6 and 10 years old) together to explore a different craft or medium each month. Each workshop has volunteer opportunities for youth & teens (11 years old and up) to help support the workshop. Please contact for more information.

Our program is made possible by the Near Southeast Community Partners and the CSX Mitigation Fund as well as the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.
