Artist Janaï Johnson returns to EAST workshops on November 14th with Lisa Clarke, founder of SWAG Works, to paint scenic fall portraits. Using her African and Native American heritage into colorful painting, murals, and home decor, Janaï will teach the kids on how to use nature and your surroundings as inspiration to create something beautiful. Janaï is a DC based visual artist. Influenced by her Father, who taught her, Janaï now teaches art and mentors students at a DC Elementary School.

SWAG Works DC is a collective art group providing art services and education to the Southeast DC Community and Metropolitan Area. SWAG Works (Southeast Washington Art Group) mission is to promote and bring together established local artists with residents in providing art education classes, paint workshops and art events. As a corporate Program Coordinator and Artist, Lisa G. Clarke (who goes by Mona Lee in the art world) formed SWAG Works DC to promote and contract professional artists in supplying art instruction to students –  in schools and senior centers, workshops and events with an interest in the visual arts.

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.
