Instead of sitting at a bar to rewind after a long week, why not try painting?
ArtJamz, a company that has been holding art sessions around Washington, D.C., since 2010, will open its very first retail location March 9.
The first session was held at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Since then, the group has hosted almost 80 and has provided more than 4,000 customers with creativity, food and drinks.
To celebrate the 800-square-foot new, cozy home, ArtJamz is hosting “Dupont Studio Launch Sessions” throughout March. For $65, eat, drink and paint while receiving tips and tricks from ArtJamz’s “creative enablers.” Along with unlimited use of paints, brushes and art materials, they’ll provide beer, wine, bottled water and pizza while artists work on painting a canvas that you can take home.
Although the group has a place of its own, ArtJamz’s “chief creative enabler,” Michael M. Clements, says, “Pop-up sessions are in our blood. We will be continuing our partnership with the Smithsonian American Art Museum as well as other pop-up sessions at cool and unusual places.”
ArtJamz is family-friendly, too. From noon to 4 p.m. on weekends, the store offers KidsJamz. Two-hour sessions are $40.
Located at 1742 Connecticut Ave., N.W., the studio is taking reservations at www.artjamzdc.com.
