Brookland In Photos – Awesome Van Edition

 Brookland Artspace Lofts Brookland NE Washington DC

Anyone who passes by the Brookland Artspace Lofts on a regular basis has spotted this very cool van. The name “Quest Skinner” appears in various places on the van, so I googled it and found out that Quest Skinner is a (surprise!) really accomplished DC artist. I am so glad the Lofts came to our neck of the woods, it really has enriched the presence of the arts here.

Artist Rajan Sedalia Teaches Graffiti Art In Brookland

Last night, Brookland artist Rajan Sedalia taught a class on the basics of graffiti art next to the Artspace Lofts. I thought – why not? So I jumped in and learned something new. It was a lot of fun, I met some new folks, and got a greater appreciation for how graffiti is made. Rajan plans to offer more classes on graffiti and other arts as well. If you are interested, visit his Meetup page and sign up for alerts. A follow-up graffiti class is scheduled for Tuesday, October 2nd from 6:30 – 7:30. The cost is $10 per person and all supplies are provided.
