Everyone knows it is important to step back and look at the ‘big picture’ every now and then, particularly when looking at an organisation and how its people operate and communicate internally.
With Team Work of Art, the importance of teamwork, co-operation and communication is reinforced through the process of painting an artistic masterpiece of truly epic proportions. At the start of the team building activity delegates are divided into small teams responsible for painting one of many giant canvasses. Armed with brushes, paint, very little information and importantly no idea what the final image will be, the teams have to work together to ensure lines meet and colours match. Delegates soon realise that to be successful, they have to co-operate with the other teams. In short, they have to take a ‘big picture’ view to ensure that each canvas fits perfectly and the final result is a success.
The image can be inspired by your company’s brand, conference theme, products, values, goals or alternatively it can be a large scale reproduction of a famous work of art. Once complete, the canvasses from all the teams are collected, framed together and covered. The highlight of the event is the final reveal where the masterpiece is theatrically unveiled to the delegates for the first time with inevitable loud cheers and thunderous applause. The completed masterpiece can be displayed back in the office as a lasting reminder of the importance of teamwork.
