Novices and artistic professional alike have the same two things in common: they love to paint and thirst for ways to improve. That’s why we started the ArtJamz Academy and packed it full of interesting and unique Washington DC art classes, artist meetups and professional artist workshops.

Reservations are highly recommended. Walk-ins are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and access is dependent upon space and availability.

The ArtJamz Academy’s mission is to provide affordable and accessible training and workshops for first-time painters and working artists alike while facilitating the ongoing development of the local creative community. Plus, since ArtJamz® is America’s original public art studio and lounge, there will always be wine, beer, creative cocktails and refreshing non-alcoholic beverages such as Illy iced coffees, Honest Tea and sodas available for liquid inspiration in the artist lounge.

Our instructor will give you a brief lesson on the history of Picasso and Cubism. Then you will get the opportunity to try your hand at the cubist technique by analyzing objects, breaking them up, then reassembling them in an abstracted form. This is no class for three-year-olds!

Public Class: Mosaic Painting
Date: 08/20/14
Time: 7:00-8:30pm
What: Traditionally, mosaics are assemblages of colored glass and stones used to create murals on walls of castles, churches, and government structures.  At ArtJamz, we’ve taken the traditional method of mosaics and flipped it around to make the process paint-friendly, portable, and much less mundane.  In this class, our instructor will teach you how beautiful mosaics can be created simply using a canvas, paint, and tape.
