Art Jamming with a Twist

1. What is Art Jamming with a Twist?

Canvases and acrylic paint are used for regular art jamming sessions in most art studios. At Streaks n Strokes “Art Jamming with a Twist” sessions, we let you paint on t-shirts, tote bags or shoes with our own hand-mixed fabric paint! Of course, you could always choose a canvas too, as a base to display on your walls.

2. Why Art Jamming?

Art jamming has been gaining momentum in Singapore recently as an outlet for art aficionados and amateurs of all ages and skill to explore their artistic side. No art experience is needed to create your own masterpiece at our free and easy art jamming sessions! A typical art jam session will usually last about 2 hours, and all the necessary art materials and paints will be provided. All you need to bring is your imagination and a touch of playfulness for an enjoyable time.

Come with your friends or sign up individually and make new friends with other art enthusiasts.

Art jamming doesn’t just help you tap into your artistic side. It’s also a great bonding activity for couples, families, and friends. 

Couples can enjoy a cosy date-night as you bond with your significant other over learning a new skill. Better yet, you two can even paint matching couple tees or totes for a unique outfit.

Young families with kids can use art jamming classes to spend quality time together in a stress-free environment and let your creative juices flow. Painting helps kids unleash their creativity, improves memory and develop their motor skills too.

As a corporate team building activity, working on an art piece together as a group can build trust and improve communications between the entire team. You might discover that your colleagues had a hidden talent for painting!

Painting is also therapeutic, and is a good way to de-stress after a hectic week at work or school. With no prior experience required, art jamming is suitable for anyone and everyone!


3. Steps for Art Jamming on T-Shirts & Tote Bags

Here is our step by step video to get you started on hand painting your very own t-shirt! These same steps apply for tote bags too.


1. Firstly, find your inspiration. Do you like cute, minimalistic doodles? Or maybe you’re a huge fan of cartoon characters. We’ve put together more than 100 fun art jamming ideas to get you started, and you can also head over to our Instagram, specifically for countless examples (and ideas) of paintings done by others on t-shirts and totes.

2.When you’ve got a rough idea of your design, trace it onto your tote or shirt with our ‘magic’ pen. The magic pen ink disappears in a few days, or if it doesn’t you can just wash it off. If you’re confident enough, you can skip this step and go at it freestyle.

3.Mix colours of our hand mixed fabric paint to get the right shades and start painting. Watch your artwork come to life!

4.After you’re done, head over to blow dry your t-shirt or tote bag to dry the paint.

5.After that, we will use the heat press to set your shirt or tote bag, so that the paint dries even faster. This will also ensure longer durability of the fabric paint on your t-shirt or tote bag.

4. Steps for Art Jamming on Canvas

1.Similar to art jamming on tote bags and tees, you first got to find your inspiration for what you want to paint. You can choose designs more suitable for painting on a full 40 x 40 canvas. To source for some inspiration, you can head over to our Instagram, or even Google, Pinterest and Tumblr!

2. Next it’s time to trace it onto your canvas with a pencil. If you make mistakes, you can erase the pencil markings with an eraser. This step is optional for the experienced painters, who may prefer to start painting right away!

3.Use our Acrylic Paint, mix the colours if needed, and start painting!

4.After you’re done, head over to blow dry your canvas to dry the paint. And you are done!:)

5. Art Jamming Ideas for Beginners

No one is born a great artist, so don’t worry about anyone judging you. Be bold and express your own individuality as you play around with colours and textures. Silhouettes are an easy design to begin with, and characters like Hello Kitty and Elmo are easy to draw. Here’s are some of our cute yet simple ideas to get you started.

6. Art Jamming for Kids

For young parents who are looking for creative activities for your kids, art jamming sessions are a good way to engage them. Art jamming increases motor skills, concentration, and attention to details as they learn how to draw, paint, and get familiar with the basics of colour mixing. 

Because there are no rules, children have the freedom to express their emotions and imagination as they experiment with materials. Through art, kids are able to nurture their learning and social development skills, which will eventually help them in their academic studies.

We all know how hard it is to clean up after messy paint splatters at home, which is why we’ve included “Art Jamming For Kids” with our regular sessions catered for the young ones. We’ll provide all the art materials and kids aprons and take care of the clean-up for you. 

Our Art Jamming sessions are led by a facilitator who is able to assist younger kids in drawing simple outlines for them to paint on. Kids will also receive kids size t-shirts for a better fit.
