EAST welcomes back Sarah Jones of SANAA Design at Eastern Market Art Series and Teachings (EAST) again on October 24 to kick EAST workshops off in 2021! Sarah will be revisiting two art forms – clay making and portrait creation. The kids will explore how to create a portrait from clay and paint the features of the face with Sarah’s guidance. All supplies will be provided for this workshop and registrations are limited to 30 kids.
We will have a lower attendance to accommodate social-distancing and all attendees will be required to be masked throughout the session.
Sarah 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. Jermone 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
