And just what do our CHAW friends say about the upcoming day of festiveness?

“Giving someone dear to you a gift of art is perfect.  It shows you care enough to seek out the unique and beautiful hand-crafted items for that person, and support artists in your own community.  In Washington terminology, a win – win.” 

– Rindy O’Brien, Capitol Hill Art League Chair

“I’m so excited about this year’s CHAW Holiday Art Fete!  The day is going to be truly magical and full of art.  This year my ballet class will be doing a small performance to the Nutcracker’s “Sugar Plum Fairy” followed by some wonderfully cheerful music from CHAW’s music programs. And the festivities won’t stop there! CHAW will also be hosting a Faculty Art Sale throughout the day, which a is great way for our community to get to know some of the members of the faculty and their artistic side; including my work, Jewelry by POPPY. (  On top of this, I’ll be inviting my youth after-school Jewelry Making classes to showcase and sell their jewelry alongside mine… learning the importance of making and selling art!”

– Heidi Hess, Teaching Artist and Jewelry Maker
