You can only climb through a ropes course or go to happy hour so many times before your team grows bored. It’s good to mix things up once in a while! One team-building activity that everyone can enjoy is a private painting party. No one has to have any special skills or athletic abilities. It’s purely fun.
Here are the reasons you should consider a team building paint party for your next team get-together.
Newbies and Accomplished Painters Are All Welcome
At an instructor-led paint party, it doesn’t matter what your skill levels are. Everyone is an artist who can produce a painting worth hanging. The painting event will occur in your office building or a familiar location so that each team member can feel comfortable and relaxed. The instructor will provide detailed instructions that will allow even someone who claims they can only draw stick figures to paint a masterpiece.
Painting Is Fun
Many team building activities revolve around some kind of physical activity, such as a ropes course or sports game. This is not everyone’s cup of tea — but a paint and sip? This has something for everyone: cool pieces of art and alcoholic beverages.
As people loosen up by sipping on their favorite wine, beer, or cocktail, they bond with their coworkers over the art they are creating. It’s a lot of fun seeing how everyone interprets the instructions differently but still goes home with a stunning painting.
Painting Is Stress-Free
During a corporate paint party, no one is pitted against each other in a game or placed in the spotlight to answer questions. Each team member is free to be themselves. Even those who are worried about the quality of their art find joy in following the step-by-step instructions and seeing that their art is beautiful because it’s uniquely theirs.
Painting Provides a Peaceful Environment for Socialization
It can be challenging for team members to break into meaningful conversations in the middle of a team building game or a noisy bar for happy hour. When choosing a private painting class for your team building event, you’ll be guaranteed a quiet, casual environment that encourages conversations. For once, coworkers will be able to move beyond water cooler talk.
Painting Boosts Creativity and Problem-Solving
Everyone has a creative side, and painting helps them tap into this part of themselves. As they continue to flex this creative muscle, they will become better employees, seeing solutions to problems in new ways. It also presents an opportunity for them to put their work out of their minds for a moment which can sharpen their focus when they return to work.
