Machee Kelly is a Washington DC native and creative enthusiast. Since her youth, creating has been her passion. In high school she would design fashion illustrations and transform them into garments, but soon realized she enjoyed illustrating more than sewing textiles. Her entrepreneurial journey began in college, as she worked to create extra income for education expenses and her daughter. During that time she focused on print design and decor for events.
Machee then took her passion to the classroom, teaching graphic design to elementary and middle school youth, inspiring young people to discover their inner artist. As a young professional, she’s designed for schools, non-profits, and most frequently local women owned businesses.
Today, Machee designs at a youth non profit and creates art and products inspired by women, their beauty, versatility, and colors that exude joy. You can view and shop for her colorful art and products at www.macheecreates.com.
In the spirit of giving thanks and spending time with family, we will go on a creative exploration with paper mosaic and mixed media to create thank you trees and pop art dessert projects. Youth will create thank you trees to show gratitude for who and what they are thankful for, then we will end as yummy meals do, with a dessert mosaic project.
The Eastern Market Art Series & Trainings – 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 email@example.com for more information.
Our program is in made possible by the Near Southeast Community Partners and the CSX Mitigation Fund as well as the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.
