For those new to Art Jams or who have never heard about it before, Art Jams are events that people organize at their own home (or elsewhere), with fellow artists coming together to work collaboratively on projects such as paintings, murals etc.
This form of Art is all about creating an environment which embraces creative expression without judgement but instead provides space for like minded individuals to share ideas and inspire one another through sharing skills; whether this be painting side by side, or watching someone create a sketch.
Art Jamming Singapore sessions are also collaborative in nature, with participants coming together to offer feedback and constructive criticism on work-in-progress projects. Participants are requested to bring their own materials and register at the door. AGP provides a space of about 600 sq ft with basic facilities such as tables, chairs and whiteboards which participants can utilise during the Art Jams
The Art Jamming culture has been embraced by Singaporeans in recent years thanks to Art Nite – an event first held on October 18th 2003 that organised monthly painting sessions around town.
These events were aimed primarily for artists who may not have had enough opportunity or resources to paint regularly on their own time.
Since its establishment, Art Nite now organises over 100 Art Jams every month across five Art Nite Art Jamsites in Singapore.
Is it worth attending an Art Jam?
If you’re looking for a fun and creative night out, then yes! It’s the perfect opportunity to meet new people and explore your creativity.
Art Jams are also dynamic events where participants come together for focused creativity sessions that last about one or two hours – having fun while gaining skills in the process!
What should I bring to my first experience at an Art Jamming session? Just yourself, open-mindedness and of course your creativity. All materials will be provided but if there is anything specific you need, please feel free to ask beforehand.
Conclusion: Broadly speaking, Art Jams are dynamically structured events where participants come together for focused creativity sessions which last about one or two hours – having fun while also growing their skillset!
