Anna Banana Brings Fine Art to Children

This winter, a new arts center will be opening in Georgetown, Anna Banana Arts and Crafts, founded by arts teacher Anne Freeman, who has taught art privately for three years.

Freeman brings 20 years of experience in the field as an educator and art dealer. She has also taught at the Art Resource Program at Chevy Chase Bethesda Community Children’s Center and at the Art Resource Unit at Metropolitan Memorial United Methodist Church Nursery School.

In those courses, students will learn about artists like Matisse, Picasso, Calder and Koons as well as how to work with different techniques and materials, such as pastels, paints, watercolors and paper pulp.

The one-room studio is filled with natural light. Courses are offered for children ages 2 to 8-years-old. The studio’s first winter session begins on Jan. 7 and will meet weekly for ten weeks.

Anna Banana Arts and Crafts is located at 3270 S St., NW. For more information and rates, visit
