The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) opens its annual Student/Faculty Art Show with a reception on Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 5-7pm at 545 7th Street SE.  The exhibit showcases work in the fields of watercolor, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, and multi-media.  Prizes will be awarded in these various fields.  Admission is free for the opening reception and the exhibit, which closes on June 25, 2011.

Gallery hours are as follows:

  • Monday – Thursday: 9:30 am – 9pm
  • Friday:  9:30 – 6pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 2pm
  • Sunday:  Closed

CHAW’s visual arts classes provide the opportunity for adults of all ages and abilities to pursue their interests in the arts and to expand their own talents.  “Along the way, students make friends and share their lives with others that they might not normally meet,” says longtime teaching artist Gina Clapp.  Teaching artist Ellen Cornett agrees. “The three high points of each week are my adult classes at CHAW.  I find it exhilarating to share my thoughts about paint and figure with others,” says Cornett.

For a complete list of workshops, classes or registration information, please visit CHAW’s website at www.chaw.org or call (202) 547-6839.

Since 1972, the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) has provided arts education to thousands of children and adults in the Washington region, especially from the greater Capitol Hill area. Through classes, performances, and exhibitions in visual and performing arts, CHAW brings together diverse segments of the population to connect through the transforming power of creativity.  CHAW offers a tuition assistance program and flexible payment plans.
