Join us for our last workshop of the season on December 12th with returning EAST artist Lindsay “LA” Johnson for comic book creation! Lindsay will explore the art of comics and how they bring stories to life. Kids will learn the basic building blocks of how to create characters, story arcs, and drawing to create their own personal comic book! We hope to see you for this very special event.

LA Johnson is visual journalist and art director for NPR in Washington, D.C. She firmly believes in the power of art to help humans understand each other a bit more through telling stories and sharing experiences. Previously she was the art director for The Intentional Magazine and she is a founding member of the DC Art Book Collective. She runs a blog about illustration and comics at nprillustration.tumblr.com and frequently teaches classes and lectures to young artists on the power of telling their story visually. Johnson creates gig posters and paintings in her free time and teaches yoga. She has a BFA from The Savannah College of Art and Design. See more of her art here: www.thelajohnson.com and follow her @neoncatdc on twitter and instagram.

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 hillcentereast@gmail.com 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.
