Not all late-night decisions made while riding the grape are bad.
Need higher proof? After an evening spent painting and emptying bottles with friends, Michael Clements resolved to find a dedicated space for ArtJamz, his pop-up art, music, and booze sessions.
The 800-square-foot studio beside Bistrot du Coin in Dupont Circle now sits ready. Consider it a blank canvas for painting parties.
Sign up online for a three-hour session. Each aspiring da Vinci gets a take-home canvas as well as access to water-based acrylics, an open bar (Vitamin Water, beer, and wine), and pizza from Fuel.
Clements or one of his creative enablers will be on hand to help unstick the artistically stuck, wash brushes, and refill glasses. The enterprise is tailor-made for single folk but can be enlisted for office retreats, bachelorette nights, or birthday parties. (Groups must include at least fifteen stroke-happy participants.)
Make your mark.
ArtJamz, 1742 Connecticut Avenue Northwest, at S Street Northwest (202-709-7078 or artjamzdc.com), $45-$65. ArtJamz sells out fast, but from March 15 until the end of April, if you see a sold-out session you want to attend, email email@example.com and the studio will accommodate up to four DC readers.
