      2. Why Art Jamming With A Twist?

      Art jamming has been gaining momentum in Singapore recently as an outlet for art aficionados and amateurs of all ages and skills to explore their artistic side. No art experience is needed to create your own masterpiece using our DIY fabric painting kits with these free online painting classes, and you can do it from your home! ADIY t-shirt or tote bag painting kit contains all the necessary art materials and fabric paintsrequired for you to start painting.

      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 paint with the guidance of free online painting classes to spend quality time together in the comfort of their homes, while letting their 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 one of our step by step videos to get you started on hand painting your very own tote bag! These same steps apply for t-shirts too.

      1. Firstly, find your inspiration. Do you like cute, minimalist doodles? Or maybe you’re a huge fan of cartoon characters. We’ve put togetherover 15 fun on fabric classes with ideas of what you can paint, and over 100 painting ideas in our painting ideas blog here. Or 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, draw it onto your tote or shirt with our ‘magic’ pen or simply trace it with pencil and carbon paper. The magic pen ink disappears in a few days, or if it doesn’t you can just wash it off. If you’re using pencil, paint over the pencil marking when you draw. confident enough, you can skip this step and go at it freestyle.

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

      4.After you’re done, blow dry your t-shirt or tote bag for about 3 minutesto fully dry the paint.

      5.After that, iron your t-shirt or tote bag for about 10 seconds, so that the paint dries even faster. This will also ensure longer durability of the fabric paint on your t-shirt or tote bag.

      6. Art Jamming for Kids

      For young parents who are looking for creative activities for your kids, art jamming and getting them to paint on items is a good way to engage them. Painting increases motor skills, concentration, and attention to detail 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 not only have kids t-shirt painting kits but also kids drawstring bag painting kits.

      Our kids painting kits also include a free mystery sticker stencil, so that kids can start painting without even having to draw or trace any designs.
