ArtJamz is taking the next step in its evolution by opening its first permanent retail location– the ArtJamz Dupont Studio. To celebrate our new home in the historic Dupont Circle area, we will be hosting eight “Dupont Studio Launch Sessions” in March. Come break in our new home and fill it with tons of creative energy and spilled paint! $65 includes beer, wine and vitaminwater zero, falafel plates, great music, a canvas that you get to paint and keep, unlimited acrylic paints, brushes, art materials, tips from our ArtJamz Creative Enablers and a chance to meet and bond with your fellow intrepid ArtJammers. A new $45 pay-as-you-go bar option is now available as well.
The new studio features a lot of great upgrades and has been built out to suit the ArtJamz experience. For example, ArtJammers will now have 18 different acrylic colors to choose from as well as a dedicated cleaning station and more art tools, brushes, markers, and misc arts and crafts knick-knacks than ever before.
The 800-square foot lounge / gallery is located in the heart of Dupont Circle and features a cozy “Artist Lounge” for eating and drinking and an open plan ArtJamz Gallery where ArtJammers can unleash their inner artists without having to worry if paint gets on the wall or floor– in fact, we encourage that.
“We feel like kids in the proverbial creative candy shop with this first studio,” said ArtJamz Chief Creative Enabler, Michael M Clements. “After 1.5 years of activating pop-up ArtJamz we are able to apply what works best for our artjammers into the perfect paint party venue in the city… and maybe the world. We can’t wait to open our doors and get this paint party started.”
Since hosting its first sessions in June 2010 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Design, ArtJamz has hosted almost 80 pop-up sessions and enabled close to 4,000 people to eat, drink and create. Although ArtJamz has a permanent home, it will still host pop-up sessions at cool and unique off-site locations, says Clements: “Pop-up sessions are in our blood. We will be continuing our partnership with the Smithsonian American Art Museum as well as coming up with regular pop-up sessions at cool and unusual places.”
The ArtJamz Dupont studio will also host KidsJamz sessions during weekend afternoons and out of the box art classes during the week. March will also see three two-hour KidsJamz Sessions, featuring painting and pizza for children aged 5 to 16.
