TEAM BUILDING ART PARTY IDEAS

Guided Freestyle Session

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

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.

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.
