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.

2019 Darkroom Artist Exhibit - Reception & Artist Talk - Veronica Melendez

The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop presents an exhibit of the works of Veronica Melendez, recipient of CHAW’s 2019 Darkroom Artist Residency, on view August 19th - September 9th 2019. A reception and artist talk will be held on August 31st, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at 545 7th Street, SE, Washington, DC, 20003. For three months this spring, Veronica worked in the darkroom and digital photographic facilities at CHAW, dedicating time to a project about her grandmother’s 8 daughters who almost all migrated to D.C from Guatemala in the 80’s. The reception and exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information, call (202) 547-6839. 

Veronica Melendez is an artist based out of Washington D.C. She received her MFA from the
University of Hartford and BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. From illustrations
of iconic household products to photographs documenting the diaspora of Central Americans,
her work is greatly influenced by her Latinx upbringing. Having been raised in D.C within one of
the largest Central American communities in the United States her work gives a platform to a
voice that is often marginalized and serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of culture
and representation in art. Veronica also co-runs La Horchata Zine - a seasonal magazine
featuring artists with Central American ancestry.
