About ArtJamz

Unleash Your Inner Artist!®

ArtJamz® is dedicated to making the world a more creative place. We've become paint and sip's most authentic brand by focusing on creatively enabling the creation of original works of art in a social art studio. Our unique freestyle approach is influenced by the spirit of independence and innovation of the Washington D.C. creative scene, home of The Washington Color School, Chuck Brown and Go-Go music, Duke Ellington, Dave Chappelle, Marvin Gaye, Dave Grohl, Henry Rollings, and many more.

ArtJamz was founded by Michael M. Clements as a production of Genki Media® LLC, a company dedicated to incubating creative start-ups in the Washington D.C. metro area. The ah-ah moment came when Clements was up late one night painting, drinking and hanging out with a group of friends. “Wouldn’t this be great if there was a place we could do this?” he thought. The rest, they say, is history.
