ArtJamz academy with unique guided art classes

Guided Art Classes

Unleash Your Inner Artist!® at the ArtJamz® Academy with unique guided art classes that encourage original artwork.

At the ArtJamz Academy we creatively enable everyone from first-time painters to aspiring and established professionals at our guided art classes in Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland. Select the program that fits your artistic level and start expanding your artistic horizons.  

ArtJamz Academy classes provide guided instruction but we still encourage adding an individual (or team) twist. We typically focus on a specific artist, technique or genre and explore it, offering an example for reference and inspiration, but encouraging serendipity and originality.

  • 2HRS of guided instruction for adults or 1 HR for kids
  • One canvas (four sizes available)
  • Easel and smock rental
  • Access to nontoxic 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 and refreshing non-alcoholic beverages available for liquid inspiration in the artist lounge.
