Adult Student Show

Join CHAW in celebrating our adult students by checking out their latest artwork!  The twice yearly Adult Student shows provide an opportunity for adult student artists to display their work and share it with family, friends, and the wider Hill community. We hope to have a nice range of work from photography and ceramics to painting and drawing. Our judge for the show is noted DMV artist, Greg Skrtic. Check out more information about Greg by following this link:
