Art Classes

Unleash Your Inner Artist!® at the ArtJamz® Academy with Washington DC art classes, artist meetups and professional artist workshops.

At the ArtJamz Academy we creatively enable everyone from first-time painters to aspiring and established professionals. Select the program that fits your artistic level and start expanding your artistic horizons.

Novices and artistic professionals 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 programs.

You can view our upcoming schedule below. Classes cost $40 and include:

  • 2 hours of guided instruction
  • One 12 x 16 stretched canvas
  • One glass of wine, a beer or a non-alcoholic beverage
  • Easel and smock rental
  • Access to non-toxic water-based acrylic paints, paint brushes, palettes, sponges, markers, pens, pencils, pastels and other cool “weapons of mass creativity”

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.
