Art Jam Ireland was founded in 2007 by artist Deirdre Geraghty and was the first company in Ireland to focus on bringing once off art activities to adults. Art Jam Ireland was the first company to bring art activities into the corporate world in Ireland and created the first arty hen party. Art Jam Ireland was a pioneer in making art activities in the adult market mainstream. Initially focusing on the corporate market providing once off painting sessions for staff fun, team building, family days, brainstorming sessions, break out sessions from training, problem solving and product launches, and art workshops for corporate wellness we then got involved with the hen party market in 2008 by creating the worlds first Paint A Nude activity. The hen party activities market was only starting to take off back then and to much surprise turned out to be completely recession proof!. Art Jam Ireland created Sculpt A Nude in 2014 to provide a new activity to the ever increasing market. Art Jam Ireland has grown from strength to strength as people across the board realise the benefits of creative activity.
The success of Art Jam's activities have contributed to making art activities for adults a more acceptable and mainstream activity. It is wonderful to see so many people that considered themselves "non arty" to now discover that they enjoy having creative time, whether they are participating through a work event, a hen party or painting in a pub!
The therapeutic benefits of art activity can not be underestimated and it is long and now well documented how beneficial art making is for mental health and well-being. So whether you are organising a staff event, a hen party, a retreat or a cultural event, including an art activity as part of your day can only contribute to your well being and event.
