Uncorked Paint provides Team Building workshops in and around Sandpoint, Idaho that enable organizations to develop a creative and innovative team culture. We help transform your team and develop team identity through painting. No form of art is simpler than putting brush to canvas — we all can do it, but many adults no longer believe they are creative. Through a fun and playful exploration of colors on canvas we bring teams closer together.
Our programs are successful because we combine years of artistic and creative experience with the latest results from the neuroscience research on creativity and play-based learning. We apply those scientific research results to our activities to make your teams work more productively. Painting is an ideal tool to open the mind to unconventional ideas and to develop the courage to realize them.
Build a culture that values, nurtures, and rewards creative solutions.
We work with you to find the best program to truly inspire and enrich your team.
Individual painting allows everyone to develop their unique creativity while painting on their own canvas. It’s amazing what happens to people when they take the time to be creative – when they work on something creative and find it so energizing they lose track of time. For many people – even those doing it for the first time – painting is like that. They call it “getting into the flow.” And in the same way you exercise better in a class of people, painting, too, can be better in a group, where you mix your own self-expression with social interaction.
Collaborative painting helps building trust and enhances communication. For example, we have everyone start a painting, then pass it to the next person on their team until everyone in the group has contributed to each canvas. Or maybe you want one massive canvas that everyone contributes to. However we structure it, collaborative painting is great at bringing teams together and seeing how their contributions enhance the whole.
Painting based on personality assessment tests are popular for our customers who have previously worked with personality assessment tools. Our workshops that build upon True Colors training, Myers Briggs, Strengths Finders, or other personal assessments have been very successful. Each team member paints something that represents a dominant trait, then they spend time discussing them before finally working to tie each of the paintings together with a unique thread.
Theme-based painting allows your teams to focus on an idea that is important for your company like your branding, cultural values, identity, or your vision for the next year. Theme-based painting offers intuitive access to topics that you previously approached intellectually. Visualizing complex thought processes leads to a different form of understanding and clarity, and thus stimulates new fresh discussions.
This matches a study that IBM conducted in 2010 that “is the largest known sample of one-on-one CEO interviews, with over 1,500 corporate heads and public sector leaders across 60 nations and 33 industries polled on what drives them in managing their companies in today’s world. For CEOs, creativity is now the most important leadership quality for success in business, outweighing even integrity and global thinking. “
Yet the reality is that we don’t have enough creative people in our companies and businesses. Only 50% of people believe they are creative. And even less (only 31 percent) feel like they are living up to their creative potential.
The logical conclusion is that organizations need to think differently and provide resources, tools, and an environment that fosters creativity. It can be done. Creativity is not magical. You can learn, train and practice to be creative – as an individual as well as a company. We are here to show you how to develop creativity as an economic engine.
Imagine a team that is not afraid of new challenges and uncertainties in the daily work life because they developed tools to be creative and they learned to trust their team. This is the goal we can help your company achieve.
