HOW IT WORKS
Imagine a team building event where your staff connects their personal stories to each other and your corporate brand. Now imagine those same team members seeing the result of their collaborative experience daily as a reminder of what they can accomplish together. This is the power of Paint Your Story.
Relaxed. Fun. Filled with laughter.
Stepping away from technology.
Being gently nudged out of conventional thinking and into creativity. It is here that ideas flow and bonds form.
Personal technology will be replaced with face-to-face conversation.
Still life and paint-by-numbers are banned.
Paintbrushes are outlawed.
Put aside the “I can’ts” and replace them with “I remember this.”
Get creative. Get involved. Get connected.
Attendees are lead through a series of warm-up activities where they learn to connect color with emotion. Next, each person creates an individual piece of art, unique to their story, but connected to everyone else’s by a common theme.
Finally, the masterpiece, a collaborative piece of artwork, begins to unfold. Team members randomly select a prompt – either one word or a simple phrase crafted to reflect the theme – and respond by painting on canvas.
Themes and prompts are based on your company mission/vision/brand. And yes, we can use your corporate colors.

A one-of-a-kind piece of abstract art with layer after layer of unique strokes that can be displayed in your office. Your brand comes to life through color during this team-building experience.
