National Hispanic Heritage Month is a month dedicated to hispanic achievement, culture, and people. The month of September was chosen as the starting point of the celebration because it is the the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month ArtJamz is putting on a series of classes to celebrate hispanic culture. Our artist of the month in September is surrealist Frida Kahlo. We will have classes dedicated to Kahlo’s incredible portraiture and we will also have fun paint & sip classes with a hispanic themes. Classes will run throughout the month of September in both our Dupont Studio and Crystal City Studio.
Transform into your favorite artist with the ArtJamz Artist of the month
Each month ArtJamz focuses on a famous painter. Our Artist Series painting classes are meant to be educational and fun. An art instructor will take you step by step through some of the world’s greatest paintings whether it be an expressionist landscape like those of Vincent Van Gogh or a surreal portrait like those of Frida Kahlo. Be ready for some creative fun as we dive into art history and create our very own artwork just like the masters.
