A group of people can enjoy an entirely unique experience through participating in a creative painting, mixed media, sculpture or drawing session.
The process of visually and physically creating art motivates all intuitive activities in us, especially right-brain activity such as optical and gestural communication, aesthetics and appreciation. Members of a department or business can apply the creative session as a team building exercise, or as a stress-relief activity, whilst responding to new artistic stimuli.
A teacher will guide a group by demonstrating various techniques to create a work of art. Art products are supplied, as well as instruments to produce a whole host of effects. Techniques in painting can include sponging, texture, palette knife, splattering, wax, s’graffito (scratching off), squeegeeing, dripping, swirling, charcoal mixing and combing. Sculpture will consist of building a clay model onto a frame.
Each person may also receive a hamper of art products needed, and sweets, endorsing the playful element.
Other forms of creating art include:
• Venues can be arranged almost anywhere.
• Creativity acts on many levels – it enhances many faculties – such as individual expression, collective problem solving and conceptual thought.
• If you’d like to initiate a more complex team session in terms of coordinating art tasks with corporate culture or problem-solving as a team, it can be coordinated. An example – communication – can be brought into play by communicating thought through symbolic and linguistic imaging to relay a united identity. Each ‘player’ receives visual hints and keywords to engage in to answer a question or to communicate a challenge. At the end, the groups’ joint imaging will bond to form a slogan or idea that relates to your combined corporate persona or branding. We personalize these sessions because each business has its own working methods and strategies. If you’d like to investigate this option, you can contact us. Please note that this activity should have direct identification with your systems that are currently in place. It will also have a different price structure.
I have found that corporate parties are the most appreciated when an element of fun is involved instead of a forced corporate atmosphere. People react better to creativity.
What to consider for a group activity:
|Number of Participants
|The number of participants influences the type of activity.
I can host a minimum of 20 people, and a maximum of 300.
I employ helpers and even sometimes a youthfull dream team if required.
Additional transport of materials may be required.
Members of larger groups usually clog into their own little familiar groups when participating in an event and I found it should not be administered differently.
|The venue will need tables and chairs accordingly with enoug air circulation, and can be hosted indoors or outdoors, but is subject to weather conditions like rain and wind.
If you are a venue planner we need to set-up a choreographed program and solution.
|Time your event
|You cannot plan an event like this too close to the date, as preperation is vital.
Your first priority is to decider the events’ date, then location and duration, then food, beverages and entertainment if relevant.
Transport is important if alcohol is included.
|Choise of artwork

A combination of canvasses creating a whole (requires being divided into groups).
