Tucked on a corner in the Eastern Market neighborhood of DC, CHAW has been Building community through the arts—and creating lifelong arts patrons and participants—for more than 40 years. CHAW provides inspirational and creative programming for its Youth Arts (after-school and summer camp), Early Childhood, and Adult programs; in addition to producing and supporting public art projects, exhibitions, stage productions, performances, gallery talks, and other arts events throughout the year. By encouraging and nurturing students and artists alike, CHAW delivers an authentic arts experience that leads to a stronger, more vibrant community—inside and outside our walls. At CHAW, we are committed to direct action to bridge our community’s income gap: providing a space where adults and children from different racial, socio-economic, and geographic backgrounds can learn and play together. No student is ever turned away for inability to pay: CHAW provided tuition assistance to 100% of need-based applicants in the 2013-2014 year to ensure equal access to quality arts education for every age and ability level.
