Post-Graduate resident, Danielle Smith, conducts a series of free writing and painting workshops designed for girls aged 8-16. The goal is to provide a space for girls to discuss aspects of society that affects their lives directly while channeling their emotions–both positive and negative–into artistic processes.

Workshops will run for one hour in the Post Graduate Studio (Studio 12) at the Torpedo Factory, and are two parts: a writing exercise and a painting exercise, followed by a discussion.

RSVPs are encouraged to ensure participation.

  • September 17 and 18 will be part of the King Street Art Festival.
  • September 24 and 25 will have a special focus in honor of the opening of the Smithsonian African American Museum.
