Benefits of Team Building Events

There's a strong correlation between employee retention and the quality of team relationships. The fun and easygoing nature of paint and sip is great for team bonding. It also relieves stress! Paint and sip together, or just paint – the team building benefits are the same.

For companies, group painting has a hidden benefit: It encourages team members' brains to work in new ways, and jump-starts creative thinking and problem-solving abilities. Leave the stress and deadlines at the office behind and have some fun together in an upscale, relaxed environment.

At Pinot's Palette, we're flexible, detail-oriented and offer a variety of turnkey options. Our team building events are easily and frequently adapted for client appreciation, fundraising and office holiday parties. Additional time and meeting facilities available along with your painting class.

  • Musical Chairs

    Musical Chairs

    Team members move from canvas to canvas, creating shared works of art. You start at one canvas and during the session move around the room until you end up back at your original seat for final touches to the painting. Talk about a team effort! Create a gallery in your company hall.
