DenArt Body Painting Academy

Jam session (uninstructed practice)

body painting jam sessionSince practice is essential to improve any skill, every month we host a jam session where students can practice what they’ve learned in class.

In these jam sessions, painters have the final say on what they’d like to paint on the models.

Since this is an uninstructed session, you will need to have some experience body painting and know all the safety requirement. If you are not sure about any of these, join our Intro to body painting first.

To learn more and RSVP, join our meet up group, where you can see pictures from past sessions.
