In honor of International Women’s Day, EAST is thrilled to introduce a new female artist to our lineup: Simone Agoussoye! Simone is a Washington, DC native and skilled portrait painter and contemporary artist. Simone’s latest series, “Black Beauty,” celebrates Black bodies through the art of portrait creation. Kids will learn to blend portrait creation while also celebrating an iconic member of the Black community to paint. Families will be provided supplies including canvas, paint, paintbrushes, and further DIY supply instructions from Simone. This in partnership with SWAG Works, an art class and workshop series in DC.

Washington, DC-born artist Simone Agoussoye has been honing her skills in portrait artistry for the past several years. Known for her creative depictions of people—most often icons in music, pop culture, history, and the arts—Simone blends her traditional skills in portraiture with fresh, unique, and unconventional techniques transforming her from a realistic fine artist to more of a contemporary artist.
