Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) has engaged the DC community through art for over 45 years. The nonprofit organization provides artistic educational programs for about 20,000 people a year of all ages – from babies to adults. Instructional classes include photography, music, visual arts, dance, writing, and ceramics.
The organization is especially proud to provide a tuition assistance program: Not a single student has been turned away for an inability to pay for a class. That’s why we chose CHAW as our spotlight this month. We spoke with Elizabeth Rubando, marketing and development manager and ceramics department chair at CHAW about how CHAW makes art accessible for everyone in the DC area.Read more
