This classic paint and sip class consists of step-by-step instruction from the artist.
This activity gets people chatting and excited about being creative as they all replicate the same painting (or use their artistic license to create a fun variation).
The result is a wonderful masterpiece that can proudly be displayed in a cubicle or office to spark conversation and add cheer to the office space.
1. Each team member receives a canvas pre-drawn in pencil that is part of a larger company image.
By collaborating with the individuals that have matching ‘puzzle pieces’, they work together to pair up colors and ideas for creating a large image that is cohesive and represents the company.
2. This activity can also be done by having the team (or smaller groups) contribute to one large canvas.
Each team member is assigned a section of the pre-drawn image to paint during their turn.
This encourages team members to plan, support, and coach each other in the process of creating one large painting!
Each person begins with a blank canvas and follows the artist’s instructions. After a designated time, everyone swaps canvases and continues working on the next step with their new partially-painted canvas.
This 'game of telephone' will last multiple rounds and is a fun way to use planning, communication, and problem solving skills.
In the last round, each team member goes back to their original painting to make the final touches. The result is a canvas painting that has multiple member contributions and is a true representation of teamwork!
Painting activities are designed to meet company objectives. The ideas are endless and we can discuss the kind of project and duration that will fit best for your attendees.
Below are just a few examples from previous events:
"Paint Your Pet Portrait" is a great option for smaller teams and has a very personal connect for each attendee. This activity is three hours in duration.
"Pop Art Logo / Icon" For this activity, everyone is assigned a different palette of paint colors. After collaborating with a colleague to determine which colors to mix, everyone paints their own unique image. Once the paintings are completed and a group photo is taken, the canvases are displayed together in one big colorful mural! This is a great option when time is limited.
"Still Life in Your Style" Objects and visual concepts are curated to represent your company's products and values (this can be represented as a still life or one-page reference sheet). Everyone paints their canvas with objects that resonate most with them while receiving instruction and individualized support from the artist. This option really allows the individual to bring their creativity into the project while representing an aspect of their company or organization.
