Art Jam @ Dublin City Soul Festival

Posted: Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Art Jam Ireland will be doing public art jams in Merrion Square on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May as part of the Dublin City Soul Festival   see  This is a fantastic festival that has been runnning for five years now, and raises funds and awareness for the Musical Youth Foundation.  The final two days of the festival take place in Merrion Square over the weekend. So come along and get creative and create your own masterpiece while listening to the sounds of live soul music in the beautiful surounds of merrion sqaure park.  Unfortunately we can’t offer the art jam for free, as most festivals have had their funding cut enourmously this year..So while I am happy to give my time and effort.. we do have to cover our basic costs and offer something to the Musical Youth Foundation….So the price will be €20pp.  €5 of which will go to the MYF… for this you get to use all the materials – paints, brushes, aprons, easels, and you get to take home your 16×20″ stretched canvas that can be hung straight on to the wall…

Have a look at the facebook link and click if you can attend so we have an idea of numbers…!/event.php?eid=188949014484066

Temple Bar Circus Festival Photos

Posted: Saturday, July 11th, 2009

On the evening of Thursday 9th July, Curved Street in Temple Bar was filled with easels canvases for anyone to paint, places were pre booked, and there were queues of people lining up to take the places of those that didn’t turn up.  Thankfully the rain stayed of to make this a very enjoyable event for those participating.  It was wonderful for Art Jam Ireland to be able to facilitate an outdoor event and hopefuly it will be first of many.  As you can see from the photos there is a lot of talented, creative people out there.  Passers by were stopping to have a look – one or two art jammers even got asked if their paintings were for sale!!  Have a look at the photos by clicking the link

Art Jamming & Networking

Posted: Thursday, February 26th, 2009

Having an art jam at a networking event is a wonderful way to break the ice and get people talking. While most networking events are socialable events, hosting an art jam gives it a little something extra, people mingle very easily out of curiosity to see what everyone else is doing.  While one participant may think their own painting is terrible, someone else may think its fantastic.. so not only do the participants leave having made new contacts and a painting.. they may also have had an enourmous boost to their self esteem!      Art Jam Ireland recently hosted an evening for Networth Networking   which turned out to be a great evening.  There were two sessions, each for 30 people.  Food and wine was laid on in the beautifull Ballsbridge Court hotel. The first art jam session took place when people arrived.  There was a break for half an hour for the speakers and then the second group painted.  In the meantime everyone was mingling, sipping wine, having supper  and just generally having a good time.  Here are the photos:
