The arts create challenge; the arts create common ground; the arts must be accessible to all: these are the rallying cries of Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, which serves all ages and provides tuition assistance for youth and adult classes. Photography, writing, visual arts, ceramics, acting, and dance are all on the menu. CHAW offers after-school classes for elementary and middle school students in Ward 6 (vans bring them to the Workshop), private music lessons for a range of instruments and voice, and arts adventure summer camps. Committed to bridging the city's vast income gap, CHAW never turns a child away for inability to pay. It also lends support to other arts and community groups, providing reasonably priced or free space for performances, workshops, and meetings. For adults, there are juried shows for artists, lectures, dance and music concerts, and other community arts events. CHAW is also administering several public arts projects in Southeast DC. At CHAW, the arts inspire. We hope they inspire you.
