Youth Classes

After School Arts

After School Arts

Capitol Hill Arts Workshop provides joyful art experiences that build skills, a strong sense of community and a life-long love of the arts. Dedicated, professional teaching artists* encourage students to develop personal expression while investigating a wide array of processes and techniques designed to nurture artistic growth.

This fall we are modelling our afterschool program after our successful virtual summer camps. Families can choose to sign up for single week long sessions or for a discounted whole semester. Weekly themed projects will pique our young learners' curiosity and will span visual art 2D and 3D activities as well as movement and performance art. 

Students can expect to log into our zoom classroom and feel supported from start to finish by peers and mentors. Our classes are designed to meet each student where they are at, so no matter what stage your child enters the program—as a longtime participant, brand new student, or somewhere in between—there will be an appropriately-paced class that will feel both safe and challenging. As a fun bonus this year, each student will receive a welcome package before their first day. This will include some personalized material as well as a wide array of activities for creative family time outside of school and CHAW. 

*All Teaching Artists have undergone in-depth background checks as part of our standard hiring process.

Afterschool arts classes M-F, 3:30pm-6:00pm (grades k-4). Pre-teen classes (grades 5-7) available below!
