This Sunday, February 6 2022, our longtime Program Partner EAST (Eastern Market Art Series and Teachings Workshop), will be hosting a Black History Month Portraits workshop with Edmond Wilson. This is Edmond’s first partnership with EAST and Hill Center. Edmond’s work focuses on famous historical figures such as Frederick Douglas, Jimi Hendrix, Tupak Shakur, and Billie Holiday to bring to life the art of portraiture and celebrate Black history. In observance of Black History Month, the kids will use these figures as inspiration to create their own portraits.
Need some gift ideas, but want to make a real difference with your purchase? Here’s a few ways to support Hill Center and arts and culture in DC!
Virtual Cooking Classes
We’ve got a wide variety of cooking classes for early 2021 on the calendar already! A sampling of classes includes our Introduction to Cooking Series, Duck Boot Camp, Sausage Making, Chocolate Hazelnut Tart, and more! This is especially fun if you buy a ticket for you and someone you love who may be far away! It’s a unique opportunity to do something together while apart.
