I have been the Executive Director of WBL since 2002. It is one of the most important hip-hop nonprofit organizations in Washington DC and for the last 16 years we have been teaching the elements of hip-hop. Our very first class was a DJ Class, and we have great success with our Graffiti classes as well. Now you can try both!

It almost felt as though the graffiti, which in our opinion was the most fun, was rushed so that we could get to the scratching. Both activities were a new learning experience, we just felt that this particular program rushed one part so that they could give more time to the other, which ended in an awkward excess of time where we just sat waiting for the experience to end. Overall, we loved the passion the two ‘instructors’ had for their crafts,and would be willing to visit the separate courses individually to fully immerse ourselves should we ever return to the DMV.

I loved that this combined something that my boyfriend and I love. I love painting and he loves music it was the perfect combo and I LOVED that it was graffiti art not your traditional sip and paint! This was a great experience we traveled from out of town this was well worth the journey!

Had an amazing time at Mazi’s experience! They made us feel so comfortable and welcome we did not want to leave. The teachers were very knowledgeable and had great insight into their craft, you could really tell they love what they do! We had a blast spraying painting outside, learning DJ techniques and having glasses of rosé along the way. I will definitely be back soon to visit and take a more in-depth class. You leave feeling apart of a community and a lot more cultured than when you came in! A perfect experience for date night, birthdays or just for learning purposes!

This was such an amazing experience! All of the instructors were incredibly helpful, personable, and considerate. I wouldn’t have traded this birthday activity for anything else!

To start of this was a very unique and informative experience. We learned the history of Grafitti and got the chance to play and scratch some music on the turntables. Very cool! The D.J was very patient and pleasant. Unfortunately, we really didn't get a chance to draw or paint. Wish we had more time for it. Was expecting more for the price. Overall, it was a fun and pleasant experience.
