Creating a team piece of art together is something we love to facilitate. It works on so many levels, it:
- taps into people’s innate creativity
- acts as a common goal, a shared tangible objective they can achieve together within a short time
- provides a space for light-hearted or more conceptual conversation
- helps people to think pictorially, metaphorically and visually- i.e. using their right brain functions concerned with imagination, intuition, empathy, big picture, synthesis
- gives organisation a tangible, physical reminder of their time together
- is a point of focus and talking point for the office
This is one of first art projects back in 2014 with the award winning law firm Watkins and Gunn. Who said lawyers weren’t creative?
Since then we developed this concept and used it over a period of day, combining it with other exercises to help develop team relations. This session was from 2015 with the equality charity Chaware Teg.
At the end of 2016 we worked with Cardiff Community Housing Association and help staff create a painting comprising of 3 canvases depicting their walk up the mountain Pen-y- fan. This now takes pride of place in their new office refurbishment. The whole organisation, staff of 30, made their mark on this painting.
Also at the end of 2016 we worked with high street retailer Superdrug. As part of their away day, with the theme, Creating Innovative teams, they were tasked with creating ‘A Picture of Innovation’.
As a team of 30 they came to the consensus that the essential elements of innovation were: being visionary, open to new ideas, staying focused, being brave, working as a team and being creative.

‘I was looking for a really engaging business to support a piece of work on Innovation and I found the Creative Thinking Company on line.
After making a call to Prith I was delighted that she could support my Innovation session. Prith was very professional and easy to work with, she met the brief and ran the engaging session with passion and enthusiasm for creative thinking and innovation for 9 delegates, So much so we booked for another session with 30 delegates which was well received. The feedback has been really positive and people are talking about using the models and methods that Prith introduced to get creative. Thank you so much’
