Friday ARTnights: Working from the Figure


Working from nude models, this is an adults-only, uninstructed, monitored, 3-hour walk-in, drawing session. It is highly suggested that those who attend have at least some basic or prior drawing experience from the life model. The model usually poses for an extended period in the same pose so that an artist can render a completed piece and at times we will extend a particularly good pose for multiple sessions. You are free to paint or draw in a medium of your choice. The event is inclusive and welcomes both beginners and practicing, professional artists. Expect a warm, supportive, and engaging atmosphere to further develop your figure drawing skills.

Participants are encouraged to help each other and advise, as well as bring snacks or refreshments to share. $15 drop in fee-- Easels, tray tables, and drawing boards are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Call (202) 547-6839 for more information.

Upcoming Dates: First and Third Fridays October 2016 - August 2017** -- 6:30-9:30pm

**March dates are 3/3 and 3/10

There will be no meeting on January 20th

Mind-Magic & Merlot

Come learn to amaze your friends and colleagues with delightful and clever principles! Be inspired by what greater miraculous possibilities your mind and consciousness has to offer, while interacting with like-minded people and a true master-artist that engages you with his unique perspective!

For Tickets click here

A series of monthly workshops in which each session attendees learn one among many of TV Mentalist Alain Nu’s arsenal of "mind reading tricks" that can be performed as icebreakers and attention-grabbers for public speaking or to just amaze your friends and colleagues impromptu. Following each demonstration and lesson, the conversation shifts into a deeper meditation of what such an artistry might reflect from actual reality and how genuine principles of the same concept may be accessed in real everyday life. Merlot tastings offered throughout the workshop (while supplies last).


About the Artist: Alain Nu (known as “The Man Who Knows™”), harnesses thoughts, senses and the imagination to perform seemingly impossible feats using the powers of the mind. Whether he's guessing your thoughts, predicting the future or suspending the rules of physics, he's sure to captivate your sense of reality vs illusion. He has starred in his own television specials for Discovery Channel on the TLC network, entitled “The Mysterious World Of Alain Nu”. He has headlined at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship, the International Spy Museum and even performed for presidents, politicians, royalty and other world leaders. Now he brings his otherworldly talents and mental acuity to the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop in D.C.
Workshops start promptly at 7:30pm ending at 9:00pm.

Friday ARTnights: Circus District: Juggle Jam!

Throw caution to the weekend! Every third Friday of the month, conquer the thrilling challenge of juggling with veteran juggler Christian Kloc. This workshop begins with a short demo, moves into some goofy warm-ups, then puts juggling props in your hands and offers pro tips to jump-start your newfound circus habit. After practicing controlled chaos, put on a show with your fellow jugglers and get the 'big top' applause you deserve!

All ages are welcome. Equipment is provided. Wear comfortable clothes that allow relaxed movements.

Minimum donation of $5 with proceeds going to tuition assistance. Drop-in only. Max 20 participants-get to CHAW early to save your space!

Christian Kloc learned to juggle at age six after seeing the Flying Karamazov Brothers perform. What started as a basic trick became an obsession. Christian grew up attending juggling festivals across the country and performing at local events. After 23 years, he is still surprised and amazed by the power of that 'basic trick' to change lives and cause spontaneous outbursts of fun in the world.
Christian has taught juggling classes at the Trapeze School of New York (DC) for the past two years. He has performed in circus productions at the Atlas Theatre, SAX Lounge and as part of the city's Art All Night celebration. Since last Winter, he and his friends have been working on their urban photography project Street Light Circus to bring contemporary circus to the District through exhibits, workshops and online collaborations.

Taffety Punk Presents: Mercy Killers and Side Effects

Michael Milligan, performer and playwright, gives us an unblinking look at health care in America with two new stories each told from different perspectives:


Mercy Killers focuses focusing on those seeking care, specifically how a blue collar American grapples with his red state ideals when he realizes the measures he must take to care for his beloved wife.

Side Effects tells a story of a doctor who discovers just how taxing it is to practice medicine as bureaucratic pressures collide with his professional and personal responsibilities.
