1728 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Back in Feb. 2012 ArtJamz opened at 1742 Connecticut Ave, NW. In Nov. 2012 we learned that Kultura was closing at 1728 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Now ArtJamz is going to take over that space. I stopped in last night and they said they hoped to open in the new space around March 1st and were moving because the Kultura space was larger and had the additional benefit of two floors.
For those not familiar with ArtJamz:
Founded in 2010 in Washington DC, ArtJamz is the National Capital Region’s original source of participatory paint parties. We were the first to combine socializing, drinks and creative expression and let people unleash their inner artists. Our unique brand of guided freestyle paint parties are great for social and professional events, office outings, private paint parties, kids parties, and date nights as well as for singles looking for something fun to do in Washington DC.
HOW IT WORKS
ArtJamz is an open art studio and lounge where anyone can come-in to paint and drink. You are not confined by a specific class time or schedule. We operate like a restaurant – walk-in anytime we are open and feed your creative side.
It’s $12 an hour for studio time, which includes unlimited acrylic paints, paintbrushes and lots of cool “weapons of mass creativity” like paint knives, graffiti markers, pencils, oil pastels, glitter, drafting tape, construction paper, glue, stencils, and random crafty knicknacks. You’ll get a standing easel, a smock, a paint palette and personalized guidance from our art-trained Creative Enablers. Meanwhile, great music and a selection of wines, champagne and beers in the Artist Lounge will keep the creative juices flowing even in the most uncreative of souls.
