TBAE’s Art Workshop team building activity highlights the importance of unity in diversity and creative thinking in a team. Large groups can participate in this activity as the size of a group is only limited to the number of canvasses.

The Art Workshop team building activity starts with the group being divided into different teams using TBAE’s ice breakers. These ice breakers are designed to divide the group up in a way that ‘cliques’ are separated and new relationships formed. Each team is given a blank canvas, paints and brushes.
The teams are then each given a subject to paint and they are made to believe that the challenge is to produce the best work of art on their particular canvas. Each team works separately on their own canvas and are not aware of what the other teams are painting. Unknown to them, all the teams are working on different parts of one big painting. While thinking they are competing against each other, all the teams are in fact working on one single goal.
All the canvasses are combined at the end of the team building activity to create one work of art. The end result is a combination of artworks, each having its own unique style, but creating one new original work of art.
This fun team building activity is a rewarding challenge for participants and promotes cohesion within a group. The activity ends on a motivating high as the participants are impressed by what the group achieved through the individual efforts of each team member.
