To celebrate their 100th anniversary, the Spencer Hotel - an intimate, literary-themed boutique hotel - has teamed up with the not-for-profit Washington Community Arts and Cultural Center to host a series of art activities and customized workshops by renowned artists, writers and musicians of multiple disciplines. Workshops will include poetry, pottery classes, jazz guitar lessons, concert & composition, watercolor & acrylic painting classes, drawing and illustration, visual arts for children, theater and performing arts, and playwriting. Wine tastings, spa treatments, food themes and relaxation exercises will be also be part of each themed workshop.
Each room of the Spencer is dedicated to a renowned author, depicting scenes from their most famous works. In the C.S. Lewis (Room 302) a mural shows the entrance to Narnia from The lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, complete with the famed Wardrobe. The Isak Dinesen (Room 203) pays homage to Out of Africa with a bed under dream-like safari tent, while the Jules Verne (Room 306) gives the playful feel of sleeping up in a balloon traveling Around the World in 80 Days.
