Sweet and simple.
Choose your favourite image (or let Raw Canvas
help you). Each of your members will paint their own
version of the image. Put them all together to make
one big piece of art, bringing the team together.
And get your very own Andy Warhol for your wall!
THE DANDY WARHOL
Sweet and simple, but with a silky twist...
Choose your favourite image (or let Raw Canvas help you). We will have the image outline
silkscreened onto your canvases. Each of your team members will personalize the image with
their own choice of colours etc. (Imagine a “paint by numbers” but without all the rules).
Put them all together to make one big piece of art, bringing the team together.
And get your very own Warhol original for your wall!
GROUP ART COHESION
In this session, you will choose an image that is relevant to your team’s goals.
We will then divide that image into sections and print out each one.
Each member will be given a section to paint onto their canvas.
Everyone will be encouraged to communicate and
coordinate in order make all of the pieces fit,
creating one great work of art in the end.
INTO THE WILD
Bring your team to Raw Canvas.
Pick your paints and step into uncharted territory.
The only rule is that there are no rules!
Got enough art on the walls already?
Instead of painting traditional canvases, how about painting canvas tote bags?
They come in 3 different styles, and, of course, we’ll still give you the paint, brushes
and everything you’ll need to create your own custom designed reusable shopping bags.
(Ask about combining this with the Andy or Dandy Warhol).
LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT?
Raw Canvas will help you to create a unique
team-building event personalized for your group.

THE BLIND SPOT
The Ultimate Communication Challenge.
We start by splitting your group into pairs.
Each partnership will be given two images to work with,
one for each member to describe and one for
each member to paint.

The first member of each pair will not be allowed to
see their image. Their partner, looking at the image, must
use their best communication skills to describe the image to their friend who will be
sketching (and then painting) the image onto their canvas based on the description given.
Then they will switch.
The second member will not be allowed to see their image either. Their partner must
return the favour, using their best communcation skills to describe the image to their friend,
again with the goal of accurately re-creating the image onto the canvas.
Art Battle is FUN competitive painting.
A thrilling event of artist creation and team participation,
Art Battle brings your whole office together for an exciting live arts experience.
In each 20 minute round, 4 painters (or teams) will paint their best possible work.
At the end of the round, the entire
office will vote for the winner(s).
The winner(s) of each round will
go on to a final round of 4,
where a champion(s) will be
crowned, earning bragging
rights for the following
fiscal quarter (at least).
THE JACKSON POLLOCK
Follow in the footsteps of the great American artist
Jackson Pollock as we get together for an afternoon
of abstract expression.
Throw your canvas on the floor, let go of your inhibitions,
and drip, dribble, and drizzle yourself a masterpiece.
Just don’t wear your good shoes.
