Get Artsy in DC this Week with SideTour

Looking to dip your toes into something creative this week? These SideTour experiences give you the chance to shoot frame-worthy photos, view a museum’s masterpieces or even dive into a BYOB painting session, all under the tutelage of a brilliant expert host.

Take Pro-Quality Shots with Your Digital Camera Under the guidance of a photojournalist, you’ll learn how to use the white balance settings on your DSLR in order to capture riveting shots through the use of color and light. You can choose to explore nighttime photography on Wednesday evening or capture daylight shots on Saturday afternoon.

Brush Up on Your Painting Skills at a BYOB Party It’s important to feel comfortable when making art, and sometimes wine begets creativity. Join this BYOB painting session on Wednesday or Friday evening, and hone your brush techniques with a talented art instructor. Your first glass plus all painting supplies are included, but you’re encouraged to bring your own vino reserves.

Photograph the Monuments at Night Capture the city’s Friday night lights and shoot postcard-like nighttime photos of DC’s monuments. An architectural landscape photographer shows you how to alter your DSLR’s camera settings and use a tripod to take beautiful photos in an evening setting.

Tour the Smithsonian With an Insider If DIY isn’t your style, spend your Sunday afternoon admiring famous masterpieces with an exclusive tour of the Smithsonian’s Middle Eastern, Indian and Asian art collections. You’ll hear the fascinating stories behind iconic paintings and sculptures, and dig into some lesser-known gems as well.
