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 at our Washington DC art classes. Select the program that fits your artistic level and start expanding your artistic horizons.

Adult classes cost $40 and $45 and include:

  • 2 hours of guided instruction
  • One canvas ($40 for 8 x 10 and $45 for 12 x 16)
  • 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”

We also host 1HR kids classes which cost $29 and include one 8 x 10 canvas.

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

To find a class go to our RESERVATION CALENDAR and select “Guide Classes” under the Event Category. All of our classes at all of our locations will then appear.

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.
