WHO WE ARE

Since 2009 we have played together in over 80 team building workshops and events, and created over 50 custom art and interior designed projects.  We have helped over 6,500 people open their eyes to their own creativity.  We have seen the power of collaborative art to transform individuals and businesses.

 

What to expect in a typical workshop

Our 3 hour custom designed workshop is dynamic, quick-paced, hands on, upbeat, filled with music, scents and visual stimulation to get everyone in a creative place:

A creative experience that bonds together people from different management levels and business types; an individual art piece embedded with participants individual goals; and a team collaborative art installation that reminds the team of the power of positive collaboration.

 

TYPICAL WORKSHOP

  • custom designed artwork
  • collaborative team building
  • option to work on vision/value statements
  • detailed follow up report and photos
  • individual art and take home apron
  • all supplies included

The group collaborates to create a multifaceted art installation custom designed for your space and imbedded with your values. In addition to collaborating on a group installation, each person creates their own take home art piece, with their personal goal inscribed in the artwork, reinforcing their value as an individual in your company.

We complete and professionally finish the works of art, provide a detailed report with photos of the workshop and install the work with a plaque telling the story of the teams creation.
