Happy New Year…

Posted: Sunday, January 4th, 2009

Happy New Year to you all … lets hope its a good one for everyone … and I hope that all of you who haven’t yet tried art jamming will get around to it sometime this year.  Why not do something new, try something that you haven’t done before…. why not get a group of ten or more of your friends together and have an art jam in your kitchen – you don’t have to have a reason!!.. just do it for fun.  Hopefully the Tuesday Art Jam evenings in the Piedescalso will be starting up before the end of January (as soon as they have the renovations completed)… and we will also be participating at the Cultivate centre on the 7th February  www.cultivate.ie  and many more events are being planned throughout the year. Check back regularly for updates or email info@artjam.ie to be added to the mailing list if you want to be advised when something new comes up.

In the meantime I wish each and every one of you a very Happy and Prosperous 2009. 

Best Wishes, Deirdre

Tuesday Art Jam @ Piedescalso Art Cafe

Posted: Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

Well…. here are the photos from the first night’s art jam at the Piedescalso… as you can see everyone really enjoyed themselves, made new friends, and surprised themselves with their own ability and talent! Thanks to all who came last night, I have no doubt we will see you all again soon…

We have decided to change the format slightly and now instead of getting a complimentary glass of wine the Piedescalso will be offering all you can eat tapas…. and you won’t want to miss this mouth watering food…. so come along and have a go at table top art jamming, you get the use of all materials, your take away canvas in a take away box… and all you can eat tapas will be available all evening long… and all for €25… like I said “sure what else would you be doing on a Tuesday evening!”

There will be two more Tuesday art jams on the 9th & 16th December, then the cafe will be closed over Christmas and will re open again in January and we will start up the art jams again.

Anyway.. here are the photos:-

Art Jam at Vodafone

Posted: Monday, November 17th, 2008

The VODAFONE Brand Management Team recently held an Art Jam for its a group of Brand Executives that came to Dublin from all over the world for a training session.  The art jam was held at the end of the 2nd day and the theme was based on “Make the most of now – or Take/Live the Moment”.  And there are some very interesting results.  As you will see everyone really enjoyed it and found it fun and relaxing. They are obviously a very happy bunch of employees judging by the use of colour….

IBM Art Jam

Posted: Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

IBM recently held an art jam as an end of day activity for a staff seminar day.  As you will see from the photos they are a talented bunch – considering most of them told me they were uncreative and I even had to stop some of them from running away when they saw all the blank canvases!

Google Ireland Art Jam

Posted: Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Google Ireland, renowned for being an employer of choice and one of the best companies in Ireland to work for, recently held an Art Jam for one of their departments.  It was a hive of activity with 60 participants… and every one exploring their very own creative side..and what better way to stimulate and encourage creativity in a team than having an art jam. Everyone got to keep their canvas, however those that wanted to could enter their painting for a voting system to be picked as art work to adorn the offices.  Have a look at the photos…

The Back Loft at La Catedral Studios

Posted: Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

This is a great venue for an art jam – either for a large group with easels or a  team building event where the participants want to roll out canvases on the floor and on walls and all paint part of a large painting which can then be stretched and made ready for hanging on the wall….  www.lacatedralstudios.org

Posted: Wednesday, July 16th, 2008
