General Info

What is the difference between Unguided Art Jam and Liberty Art Jam?

Guidance Unguided Art Jam has no guidance at all and only questions regarding placement of equipment will be answered. Liberty Art Jam includes soft guidance from our instructor. They will help you kickstart your painting and provide tips and tricks along the way. Minor demonstrations will be shown if required. However, instructors are not obliged to help participants to paint his/her/their painting. Price Unguided Art Jam costs $25/pax for 2.5 hours Liberty Art Jam costs $38/pax for 2.5 hours Timing Unguided Art Jam (only available on weekdays) Monday - Friday: 10.00am - 5.30pm Last session starts at 3pm and ends at 5.30pm Public Holidays: Closed Liberty Art Jam Tuesday - Friday*: 7.00pm - 9.30pm Saturday: 1.00pm - 3.30pm or 4.15pm - 6.45pm Sunday: 12.30pm - 3.00pm or 3.30pm - 6.00pm *Min. 4 pax required to start a session Do note that prior booking is required for all art jamming sessions and are subject to availability. WhatsApp us at 9011 1431 to book your slots.

Can I extend my painting session?

Unguided Art Jam Yes, you can. There is a charge of $10 for any additional hour. If you are looking to extend on the day itself, do provide us ample notice as there may be other bookings after your session. Extensions are not available for timings beyond 5.30pm. Our studio closes at 5.30pm and we need time to clean up, disinfect and prep for a brand new day! Liberty Art Jam Extensions are unavailable as we may have other art jamming sessions or workshops after that. We respect our instructors' personal time- all sessions will need to end on time.

What if I am unable to finish my painting in one sitting? If I come back another time to finish it up, must I pay for another session?

We want each art jammer to take their time to create a piece they truly love and can take home, so you’re more than welcome to finish up in another sitting (subject to our storeroom space; it's extremely limited). If you're staying for a second session or returning to complete your artwork, the rate of S$38/pax for the subsequent session(s) still applies. The money that we receive from our Liberty Art Jam sessions helps us to pay our rent + utilities, purchase materials and engage our instructors to keep Liberty Art Jam running ☺ Alternatively, you can opt for the Unguided Art Jam sessions ($25/pax) to complete your painting, depending on your preference. Scenario 1 (Liberty Art Jam) If Sam booked two sessions on Sunday to paint, the rate is $76/pax. Scenario 2 (Liberty Art Jam) If Sam booked a session on Friday night, the rate is $38/pax. If Sam booked another session on Saturday to finish his artwork, the rate for that session is still $38/pax.

Can I request for an extra canvas?

Sure, if you are a fast worker why not? Do note that an extra canvas will be an additional charge of $8.00 per canvas (40cm x 50cm). Check out our Mellow Mama Shop in our studio on the day itself if you're looking for other sizes.

What if I want to upsize or downsize my canvas?

Sure, you can upsize or downsize! If you would like to downsize your canvas, there will be no reduction of fees. If you would like to upsize your canvas, top up charges apply. Smaller canvas ≠ cheaper art jam session price Bring your own canvas ≠ cheaper art jam session price

Do I need to bring my own materials?

Nope! All art materials are provided so don't worry about anything! Just bring an open heart and open mind. Materials provided:

  • 1 x Canvas (40cm x 50cm)
  • Acrylic paints, palettes
  • Paint brushes, palette knives, sponges
  • Aprons
  • Cloths (to dry painting tools)
  • Water containers (to rinse painting tools)
  • Plastic carriers (to bring home your painting)

Can I bring my own materials?

Sure, you can! However, do note that no oil paints are allowed due to the paint odour and no watercolour as we are painting on a canvas placed on the easel. Other mediums are welcome! ☺ Bring your own art materials ≠ cheaper art jam session price

What if I have no art experience?

We embrace the presence of each art jammer and try to ensure that nobody will be lost in the process. We assure you not to worry if you do not have prior art experience. Tips will be given to kick-start your creative flow. We've had hundreds of beginners come for Liberty Art Jam so don't worry! Just come and have fun ☺

Who is suitable to join the art jam sessions?

Liberty Art Jam We require a minimum of 7 years and above to join the session due to the long duration of 2.5 hours which is not suitable for younger kids' attention span. For the consideration of other Liberty Art Jammers, we refrain from having kids younger than 7 years old. Do note that an accompanying adult is not allowed unless he/she/they are joining the session as a participant. Apart from the minimum age, we welcome everyone of all ages including senior folks! Do let us know if you have any underlying medical condition that we need to be aware of. Please note that there is a flight of stairs to access our studio and is thus not wheelchair-accessible. Unguided Art Jam Kids below 7 years old will require one accompanying adult. The accompanying adult is encouraged to join the painting session - 1 kid strictly to 1 accompanying adult.

My friend wants to come and hang out while I paint. Can they come and not paint?

Sorry, only people who have reserved a slot to paint in our art jam sessions are allowed. If your friend would like to join you, persuade him/her/they to paint with you!

What if I'm late for Liberty Art Jam/Unguided Art Jam?

Do inform us beforehand if you are going to be late. Don't leave us hanging! Arriving late means you'll have less time to paint. Sessions will still end on time so please be punctual!

What if I am unable to finish my work? Can I leave it at your studio and continue another time?

Oh no, our storeroom has run out of space! We highly advise that you complete within the stipulated time. If you have kept your artwork in our studio, it may be difficult for you to continue when you return. Do note that any work that is unclaimed after 6 months will be repurposed.
