Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
At Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, students can learn to throw a pot. But no clay will be harmed during the process, as "throwing a pot" in ceramics terms means making a pot on a ceramics wheel. And the arts center has plenty of wheels to practice with.
For the center's students, who range from pre-K kids to adults, opportunities to try other disciplines abound, too. Since 1972, the teachers have been sharing passions that range from dance and visual arts to music and photography. They encourage students to expand their creative horizons in classes that cover such topics as theater, graffiti art, creative writing, and ballet. They even teach students to develop photos in the center's darkroom, which is 100% free of monsters and boogeymen. Capitol Hill Arts Workshop also offers tuition assistance and payment plans if necessary.
