Art Jamming @ Yorokobi Art Cafe, Seri Petaling

Ever heard of art jamming?

It’s kinda like music jamming where people come together for an impromptu jam session, but with art. You rent an easel and art materials, and then you’re free to draw and paint whatever you want.

Art jams are becoming more popular, and there are numerous art ‘cafes’ and studios in the Klang Valley where you can unleash your inner Picasso. One of these places is Yorokobi Art Cafe in Seri Petaling. The owner, who used to work in advertising, was also an art teacher – and the cafe was founded as a way to make art accessible to everyone. Aside from the art jams they also conduct art classes for those who want to learn techniques more seriously.

The interior is whimsical and quirky-looking, with a giant papier mache rabbit (the cafe’s mascot) at the entrance, and a mural inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Artworks from students and patrons line the walls, and there are loads of art stations where you can paint while sipping on a drink, or enjoy some of the cakes the cafe offers. The cafe also provides food for large groups or corporate team building events, provided you book in advance and in a minimum order of 10 pax.

Prices start from as low as RM68 for a 2-hour jam session. Considering art materials such as acrylic paints are pretty expensive, I think this is a very reasonable price – and you get to bring your work home with you too.

You can grab some of the handcrafted goods and trinkets like potpourris, earrings, bags and deco from local artisans at the entrance.
