About Moi

Hello, I'm Cherie Lester, thank you for visiting my website. This site is devoted to celebrating what I love: making and teaching art, and crafts, to kids and adults.

Originally from Delaware, I've lived and worked here in the beautiful District of Columbia for the last 24 years. Having studied at both Southeastern Center for the Arts and Corcoran College of Art + Design, I've enjoyed a long-time career as a fine arts photographer, mixed-media artist, arts instructor with Capitol Hill Arts Workshop and more recently, as a Community Marketer with Whole Foods Market and restaurants in Georgetown and Capitol Hill.

In 2017, I'm expanding my class schedule and offering lots of fun new activities for kids and adults in the District, Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Classes are held anywhere from my home studio in Woodley Park to local restaurants, condo community rooms, schools and birthday parties. Have an idea, need an idea? Email me @ cherielester@gmail.com and let's come up with something super-cool for your next birthday party or event! 

My jewelry can be found at local Made in DC shows, at AquaMarine boutique in Lewes, Delaware as well as upcoming outdoor art shows in DC and Southern Delaware. Jewelry can be seen in my Woodley Park home studio anytime or can be purchased online at Etsy (etsy.com/shop/ArtWearNecklaces) and on Handmade by Amazon: www.amazon.com/handmade/Cherie-Lester.
