TEAM BUILDING ART PARTY IDEAS

Guided Freestyle Session

In Sum: Everyone gets their own canvas and paints their own unique painting under the helpful guidance of our Creative Enablers.

Works Best: 20 x 24 or 16 x 20 canvas for 2 hours

Why it Jamz: Allowing everyone to paint their own painting lets people show off their individual personalities and viewpoints.

Team Building Art Party Tip: Have everyone talk about their painting at the end of the session. Discuss not only the subject of the painting, but how each person went about painting it. Draw workplace parallels by talking about the creative process.

Themed Session

In Sum: Individuals will create their own unique pieces, but will be encouraged to focus on a theme of your choosing. Use your company motto or a new quarterly goal as inspirational guidelines, or choose a few inspiration images and challenge team members to include them in their pieces. Creative Team Building session allow participants to get creative within a semi-structured (but still low-key and fun) environment. Give everyone their own canvas or divide the group into teams of 2-4 for a unique team-building exercise.

Works Best: A 16 x 20 or 20 x 24 canvas for each person

Team Building Art Party Tip: With everyone working towards a common goal and exploring the company’s objectives in a new way, it will be easy to draw workplace parallels about teamwork, creativity and problem-solving. **Please bring printouts of any images you’d like the group to reference. We are not able to print your images for you.

Guided Class Session

Choose a picture for everyone to recreate in a fun and relaxed environment, and leave with hangable works of art! For example, choose a photo of the capitol or cherry blossoms, and our staff will give step-by-step instructions for everyone to follow to paint that image.

Works Best: 20 x2 4 or 16 x 20 canvas for 2 hours

Why it Jamz: Even the least artistic person will leave with a hangable work of art.

Team Building Art Party Tip: Choose an image that relates to your company, core values, or goals. **A selection of 3-4 photos must be sent to ArtJamz at least a 10 days before the event. ArtJamz staff will choose from these photos the one that will work best for a guided paint session and create a custom lesson plan for your group.
