Paint and sip with a cultural flair with this painting series celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month

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

Why it Jamz: Allowing everyone to paint their own painting lets people show off their individual personalities and viewpoints.

Team Building Art Party Tip: Have everyone talk about their painting at the end of the session. Discuss not only the subject of the painting, but how each person went about painting it. Draw workplace parallels by talking about the creative process.

Themed Session
