Art Night

CHAL Opening Reception - "Joie de Vivre"

Capitol Hill Art League Opens Its 2018-2019 Season

with a Focus on “Joie de Vivre”

The Capitol Hill Art League presents an all media, members’ art exhibition called Joie de Vivre.
This Joy of Living theme invites our members to use their “joie de vivre” in creating exuberant artwork to invoke energy, inspire enthusiasm, cause cheerfulness, lend lightheartedness, and deliver JOY!

Friday ARTnights: Circus District - Juggle Jam!

Throw caution to the weekend and 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! 

Friday ARTnights: Working from the Figure

Work on drawings or paintings in front of a live model in a session without formal instruction, facilitated by artist Will Fleishell. Please bring your own drawing materials.
