The Panel Jam
Panel Jams, for the uninitiated, are an artists mecca, a chance to meet other like minded individuals, stripers and letterheads of all levels, both national & international and sling paint all day to admiring crowds.
The only requirements are to bring your brushes… all materials & paints are provided and the only rule is the completion of a spectacular painted panel by the end of each day which in some situations are auctioned for charity, or swapped with other panel jammers.
2017 is no exception the focal point of the Kustom Kulture Blastoff show will have places for about 30 stripers/letterheads each day and both day and weekend places are available Newbies welcome.
