This month ArtJamz is celebrating Jean-Michel Basquiat for Black History Month with our guided class “Paint like Basquiat” . Basquiat is an American painter and arguably one of the most famous artist in recent history. His painting “Untitled” from 1982 sold for $110.5 million dollars in an recent auction. Basquiat is one of very few painters to break the $100 million mark. He started with little to nothing and used his unique painting style to become an American icon. Combine figure painting and abstraction just like Jean-Michael Basquiat in our “Paint like Basquiat” class this month and learn more about this powerful figure in Black History. The class will be led by one of our jammin’ instructors and take you step by step through your very own Basquiat style painting.
Discounted drinks and a free jammin’ paint party is what you should expect for this year’s Art All Night celebration. Drop by ArtJamz Dupont Studio between 7PM and mid-night and graffiti the walls upstairs, get groovy with neon in our downstairs glow in the dark room, or decorate our roving human canvas. Admission is free with discounted happy hour priced wine, beer and creative cocktails.
Art All Night is a fine arts festival in its sixth year here in Washington DC, modeled after the famous arts festival in Paris, Nuit Blanche. The festival started in Shaw, and Dupont Circle has participated two years now, drawing 12,000 patrons visiting 12 galleries, retailers, and embassies.

Sometimes you need direction, we understand. Our guided art 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. Choose your location and book now!
Artful holidays and special events like our New Year’s Eve Glitter Ball, MLK “Painting For Peace” Sessions, Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras Masks, Mother’s Day, Día de Muertos, Winter Landscapes, and more, are fun and social occasions. For each, we offer a special package.
Party like Banksy at our $15 Graffiti Party and get 1 Hour of studio time to paint the wall plus 1 complimentary glass of house wine or beer. The lounge will be open for liquid inspiration and we’ll be playing jamming tunes. Afterwards, purchase more studio time and canvas and let your vision come to life off the wall.
