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.
Join us each month for our Zodiac Series, guided painting classes focused on that month’s Zodiac Sign. Everyone’s birthday is special and falls into a particular spot on the Zodiac calendar. Explore your individual symbol as we transform it into a unique and colorful painting you can take home and hang on the wall.
This month’s focus is on the zodiac sign of Virgo.
