Paint Event Themes for Corporate Team Buildings
We have various themes that we can use to tailor your event to suit your needs.
Large Collaborative Pieces
Instead of each participant creating their own individual artwork, all attendees work together on one large art piece. This is ideal to create special office art that the entire team worked on. It will look amazing in any foyer or boardroom.
Paint Events based on famous artists
We love teaching art history. We make it fun and educational with stories of famous artists and the history surrounding famous artworks. Some popular options include a Mexican Paint Night focusing on artist Frida Kahlo, a Starry Night Paint Event focusing on the popular Vincent van Gogh, African Patterns based on Ndebele artist Esther Mahlangu, a Street Art History lesson based on Keith Haring or Shepard Fairey.
Paint Event Tailor to suit your brand
We also create events specifically focused on your brand by incorporating your brand theme, brand colours, brand beliefs, and message.

We require a minimum of 15 people but can easily accommodate groups of up to 50. For groups larger than 20, we’ll arrange for an additional teacher.
Why Corporate Events?
Customer Appreciation Events
Client appreciation events are a way to show your customers that you value them while also building loyalty. These programs allow an event host to spend informal time with its guests in a non-traditional environment, allowing both parties to build rapport and learn more about mutual business priorities.
Employee Appreciation Events
Many business owners choose to celebrate their employees as they reach specific milestones and goals. Recognizing your employees and rewarding them with something extra special can come at any time. It could be a milestone in the company, like someone’s anniversary with the group, or it could be an office holiday party for everyone for an exceptional year. Employee appreciation days are opportunities for team building within the company and have been proven to boost spirits and improve morale.
