Team Building & Bonding Creative Experiences
Experiences that turn co-workers into friends and friends into family. Thomas Merton wrote: “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” Inspirality provides participants with a fun, interactive group art activity that fosters creativity and strengthens professional relationships in a relaxed and friendly environment. This innovative approach will unleash imagination, collaboration and creativity in your employees with the artwork providing an inspirational reminder of their collective experience. These are interactive team-building experiences that can be customized to meet your team’s specific goals. Perfect for office holiday parties, celebrations, milestones, moral and communication building, or if your team just need some team fun!
The benefits of hosting a Creative Art Experience:
During the course of our events, your participants will laugh a lot, bond and communicate on a whole new level – and learn things about each other that you never knew – often after years of working together!
- Deepens bonds between co-workers
- Facilitates inter-departmental bonding/introduction and therefore cooperation
- Participants are encouraged to share ideas, however abstract, and discuss their creative process with the group
- Since it is an art expression, people strive to do their best, but are aware that it is not competitive
- It is not by physical references, but through group discussion that participants formulate their plan
- Learning to trust one’s own intuition makes one more decisive when it comes to making personal and business decisions
Round Robin Painting Experience
This creative experience allows individuals to experience what it’s like to be on the receiving end of an unfinished project, to work through a creative brainstorming process as a team, give up control and trust team members. We break up into teams of 4 and the groups discuss different themes (could be work or personal) they’d like to paint and decide on 6. They roll the dice and whatever it lands on, that’s the theme they will paint as a team. Here’s the catch! They will have 10 minutes to get started on their painting and then be asked to move to their right to the next person’s canvas, add to their painting, and again 10 minutes later switch and so on until they land back at their original art piece they started.

Paint Your Dreams Into Reality – Signature Program!
This goal oriented activity challenges participants to get clear on a single goal they’d like to achieve within the next year (career, personal, business). Once there’s clarity, individuals get to enjoy a creative experience that blends intention, visualization, interactive dialog and coaching to help individuals and teams move through blocks, and powerfully ask for what they need next to bring it into reality. The session culminates in a fluid watercolor experience incorporating the inspiration we’ve gathered along the way to create a visual touchstone that represents the dream and goal. This experience provides a sort of mental incubation period that can enhance creative thinking, long-term planning, and self awareness.
Art Project/Materials: Watercolors, paper, pencils, pens

“With Gratitude, Me” Card Making Playshop
Perfect for the holiday season! It’s no secret that expressing gratitude improves mental, physical and relational well-being. Why not take that positive energy into the office? Take the focus off the individual and think of someone on the team or family or friends – anyone they’d like to express gratitude for someone else’s contributions, their talents and their actions. When we consciously practice being grateful for the people, situations and resources around us we begin to attract better relationships and results. There’s nothing quite like opening your mailbox and getting a handmade card of gratitude! Stamps are provided! This is just a FEEL GOOD, CREATIVE activity.
