Michael Clements of ArtJamz on Creating a Business That Helps People and Analog Hangouts in a Digital World
Through The Noise #211
Michael M Clements // Chief Creative Enabler // ArtJamz
As summer comes to a conclusion around much of the United States and outdoor activities become less common, we invited Michael Clements to join us to talk about some other recreational opportunities that can be enjoyed by people of all ages — might be particularly appealing to the staff of nonprofits after a long day sitting in front of computers. Michael Clements is the founder of ArtJamz, a social art studio where people come together to imbibe tasty beverages in a social environment while painting. Created with the mission of making the world a more creative place, ArtJamz creates jobs for artists by hiring them to work with the attendees of the sessions. If you’re in the DC area, stop by to unwind after work one day and create something while meeting new people — or go with friends. (((Tell them Through the Noise sent you)))
I’m an artrepreneur. I synthesize my experiences in the arts, entertainment, media, tech, live events and business to form start-ups which disrupt traditional arts paradigms. My overriding philosophy is Business+Creativity=Happiness®.
ArtJamz® is dedicated to making the world a more creative place. We’ve become paint and sip’s most authentic brand by focusing on creatively enabling the creation of original works of art in a social art studio. Our unique freestyle approach is influenced by the spirit of independence and innovation of the Washington D.C. creative scene, home of The Washington Color School, Chuck Brown and Go-Go music, Duke Ellington, Dave Chappelle, Marvin Gaye, Dave Grohl, Henry Rollings, and many more.
