Art Jamz Photos and Video And Now in Crystal City!

ArtJamz now in Crystal City! 

On Wednesday night, Markette, myself and fellow Artjammers took over the entire floor of a building in Arlington,Va., unleashing our inner artist while painting the night away. And while, I'm certainly no Piacsso, it really didn't matter, because the night was all about letting loose, having fun and getting creative.

The space was a masterpiece by itself. 

ArtJamz is  an interactive, artistic and creative environment. Go with a group or go by yourself-- it doesn't matter. Between your fellow art -goers, the music, foobations (that's food and libations haha new word), and all that creativity in one room-you are bound to have an incredible time. Forget going out to dinner and a movie, where you can spend well over $100 bucks per person, spice it up, spend $60 and get creative! This is the perfect "date" outing as well. No awkward silences, or "interview talk" here, you can just focus on the art! Your'e relaxed and  in the moment, and even if there's absolutely no chemistry between you and your date, at least the night will be fun and you can always go home with your art work!

Art comes in all sizes, shapes, and forms. Creativity at its best!

Here's how it works: 
Each participant receives a canvas on an easel, paint and materials and gets four hours to create an  original work of art, which is yours to take home. Wine, beer, and hors d'oeuvres, a dj spinning tunes, and your fellow Artjammers will help inspire you and get those creative juices flowing.  For me personally, the more I drank, the better my art!

And mark my words you guys,  ArtJamz is and will become so HUGE that I believe it will  expand and go nationwide. Oh and ArtJamz is available on Groupon, so now you can get a ticket for even cheaper. 

And the pioneer behind this creative concept is Michael M. Clements--artist, painter, musician, director and producer.

Clements founded ArtJamz as a production of Genki Media LLC, a company dedicated to the incubation, consultation for and management of creative enterprises in the Washington DC metro area.

"The goal of Genki Media is to help foster the creative economy of the DC Metro Area on an independent and entrepreneurial small business level. Artjamz is one of the first projects we've undertaken, and it speaks directly to what Genki Media stands for-getting DMV residents creatively engaged," says Clements.
