Back in January, ArtJamz announced it was moving from it’s current Connecticut Avenue location and sliding down a few doors to expand its studio and also to potentially offer new art classes.
Well the time has come — ArtJamz will open its new 1,900-square-foot split-level loft at 1728 Connecticut Avenue NW on Thursday, March 7. The new space will be open to the public seven days a week.
“We are staying in the neighborhood, which we are so psyched about,” ArtJamz Founder and “Chief Creative Enabler” Michael M. Clements told Borderstan back in January.
The new location will also have an expanded bar menu, a new merchandise line (designed by Clements’ wife Anchyi Wei) and crowd-sourced online art-classes.
With the crowd-sourced classes, any potential instructor can pitch his/her class concept to ArtJamz online. Successful proposals will be published in an online marketplace for three weeks, and if enough students sign up, the instructor will be paid to lead the class at ArtJamz. The online marketplace will be live in April.
The new hours of operation will be Monday through Friday from 4 to 11:30 pm, Saturday from noon until midnight, and Sunday from noon until 8 pm.
