Hey folks!

We are Ashley Dequilla  and Ashley Ja’nae  and we are D.C. based artists and educators. We are the co-founder and co-leaders of Healing the Body,  a workshop that uses art and meditation as wellness tools to un-silence and empower.

Our objective is to raise startup money for our Healing the Body workshop so we can have a sustainable art program to deliver to D.C. area non-profit organizations.


Healing the Body is a workshop that serves as an informal support group that encourages community building and open discussion about the body within art and society. Our long-term objective is to heal inter-generational trauma through meditation and art, as well as create programming with organizations and/or partners that support people with disorders, addictions or disabilities. Victims of abuse, marginalized communities and at-risk youth are also peoples that we plan to serve and support. The end goal is to provide a platform that highlights mental health wellness and the access to art therapy by challenging traditional methods of art instruction and art history education.
