Meet Khalil Gill

Specialties: Graphic Design/Mural Art Workshops

“I have studied art since I was a child. After graduating from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, I went on to study at the Maryland Institute College of Art where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Illustration and a Masters in Digital Arts. In 2003, I began teaching Special Effects and 3D Animation at Gibbs College. I then moved on to teach K-12 at a Special Education school in DC where I created my own Art department later becoming the program director of that Digital Arts Department.

I am currently the illustrator for H.E.L.P. (Hip-Hop Educational Lyrics Program) Workbooks that take the lyrics of popular Hip-Hop songs and use them to teach vocabulary and critical thinking. The program has been endorsed by President Obama and integrated in schools across America. Most recently I produced a highly acclaimed animated mobile device PSA that is targeted towards young adults which was commissioned by the Harlem Health Promotion Center.

I plan to use my skills and creative insight to assist the PMC program in engaging the community with high impact results. I hope to gain additional experience, exposure and continue my commitment to arts and public service.”
