This is a wonderful place to become creative in a fun and arty environment and take home your very own art work and happy memories. The Artjamming studio provides all the materials and tools you’ll need in order to unleash your creative mind.
Don’t worry, you don’t require any skills or experience. You can simply pop in, get ready and start drawing with the paintbrush and see what comes out of it. Try different techniques as well. Whether it’s playing, painting, sponging or spraying, it’s so much fun for young and old.
Their equipment consists of various size canvases, easels, a choice of 45 non-toxic acrylic paints on tap, paint brushes in all sizes and tools to freely express yourself. You can even get a hairdryer to create special effects or speed up the drying process. If you’re unsure on how to start, you can always ask for a little help or inspiration from the qualified artists who are always present at the studio. They will be more than happy to assist you and the kids.
Otherwise, you can also check out the free activities and lessons online. For example, you can learn how to draw a giraffe or watch the landscape painting lesson and much more. Simply visit this page: http://www.artjamming.co.za/freebies.html
