Mural/Quilt Art Project: Perfect Team Work

How artistic is your team? You'd be surprised! TeamBuilding Unlimited/Murder on the Menu offers a very special team event that can also serve a community purpose: The Mural/Quilt Art Project. The finished project produced by your team can be donated to Hospitals, Senior or Children's Centers... or it can be taken back to your office and hung from the rafters!

Participants work in teams to "design" a piece of a Mural/Quilt. The theme for the finished design is  part of the challenge, as the teams decide on the theme of the quilt/banner. TeamBuilding Unlimited's Marvelous Mural/Quilt Art Project is a variation on our Flags Flying team Event. This event can be done at the office, meeting or special venue. Participants work in teams to "design" a piece of a Mural or Quilt that when assembled represents their group, products, company or another theme.

Deciding on the theme of the quilt or mural is part of the challenge. TeamBuilding Unlimited works with the teams on color palette and technique --but the best part is the creativity of your participants.

TeamBuilding Unlimited will guide your creativity, provide the materials, and facilitate the event. The "quilt" is then put together—by your teams—and can be taken back to the office and hung... or it can be donated.

This team building event involves creativity, leadership, strategic thinking, sequenced planning and communication. Quilt/Mural Making is about Process, as much as art. Facilitators work with the teams to encourage them to think BIG.

The final product is a visual documentation of your team's understanding and awareness of the theme they have selected and the process through which they went.

Variations: Can be done with mixed media including found objects (recycle, reuse).

Goal: Separate parts that add up to one vision! The Big Picture!
