Why does art make a great office team builder?

You spend a lot of time with your coworkers. It makes sense to have a good relationship with them. Without much social time left in the workweek or with some of the team working online, a team-building event can be the perfect opportunity to grow those relationships. In TMA’s art experience classes, your team can create art, get to know each other, and build relationships in a casual atmosphere—making memories that will last many fiscal years to come!

What if not everyone is an artist?

So, maybe not everyone on your team is the next Picasso. In TMA’s art experience classes that doesn’t matter! Your party is about making fun art, not fine art. Our casual atmosphere and guided art sessions leave plenty of room for you and your team to bond.

Can any group sign up for a TMA art experience class?

Team building art experience classes aren’t reserved for work functions and office events! Any group can partake. Give you and your sports team a break from practicing. Your dance team can step up to the canvas. The community club can argue whose self-portrait is better. The list goes on! No matter what you and your team do, you’ve got a place in our studio.
