Observing art can be beautiful and teach you a lot about yourself. As Oscar Wilde puts it, “it is not life, it is the spectator that art mirrors.” The next step is when you yourself become the artist. Art is defined as the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects. A skill which can be acquired by experience, study or observation. In fact, everyone can open up their minds and see the world the way an artist does. However, getting familiar with these skills can be tricky if you don’t know where to start. In that case, the best way to find out could be by attending a workshop, for example, a team building workshop, and be guided by some of the most talented artists we know.
“Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.”

Abstract Art Workshop – The Krank
What makes abstract art special is not the obvious recognizable motives on a canvas, but rather what is hidden, what leaves space for interpretation. For The Krank “abstract art is the key that unlocks many realities. It gives you the freedom to escape and travel with your mind in worlds that you thought never existed.” Instead, of depicting a person, place or thing in the natural world, the subject of abstract work is based on what you see. This includes different colors, shapes, brushstrokes, sizes, scales, and, in some cases, the process itself, as is the case with action painting.
During this abstract art workshop, The Krank guides the participants through the process of creating abstract artworks. In addition to making an abstract artwork, the creative concept is to teach participants to open up their minds and experiment. The participants can explore different painting techniques by using daily life objects in an unusual way. The activity is a perfect fit for team building workshop and company events.
Graffiti Team Building Workshop – Mesk
Graffiti art commonly refers to spray paint, applied to buildings, public transport or other structures. This radical contemporary movement emerged in New York and Philadelphia and maintains strong links with underground hip-hop culture. But this impressive art form doesn’t necessarily belong on the streets or to underground culture. Nowadays, it’s a great decorative element for homes, offices and is the subject of many exhibitions.
Hosting a graffiti team building workshop is the perfect way to bring about cool office decorations and encourages team spirit. By creating an office mural, you can enhance everyone’s creativity, cooperation skills, and brand identification.
