As a business leader, you’ve probably spent a good amount of time looking for fun and innovative ways to connect with your team members. Sure, you can browse the internet for virtual experiences that fit your team members’ needs and interests, but have you ever considered a virtual paint night?
A favorite among team members and business leaders alike, a virtual paint night allows you to connect on a deeper level and helps channel inner artists.
Let’s take a closer look at why you should consider planning one today.
Paint nights are exactly what they sound like: a night of painting! During this experience, you’ll typically all paint a similar photo, engage with one another, and maybe sip on a drink at the same time.
These are great events for corporate teams because they break up the autonomy of the everyday workday. Team members will be able to connect, laugh, and enjoy themselves, and they’ll develop a more profound connection with each other that will help them achieve more during the workweek.
Not only that, but research suggests engaging in art activities can improve your mental health and provide individuals with a confidence boost. This is all to say paint parties can be a great engagement tool you can use to promote a stress-free work environment.
If you aren’t sure where to start, we’re here to help.
