The Most Effective Way to do it, is to do it

Another shared vision created during a Collaborative Art Workshop in Weggis, Switzerland. The teams were engaged around the theme of excellence as they brainstormed and visualized their ideas in a workshop that unleashed the team’s creativity to make a meaningful masterpiece in less than three hours. Their final vision, entitled “Excellence is Attitude”, was a triptych painting inspired by Jean-Pierre Basquiat’s raw and colourful street art style.

Collaborative Art designs and delivers tailor-made creative experiences around the world to inspire, engage and unite people to create shared visions around a pertinent theme. Each project is inspired by a famous artist or art movement, adding to the wow factor when the masterpiece is revealed.

Steph Fonteyn & Uli Van Neyghem, both professional artists, combine their corporate backgrounds to facilitate Collaborative Art workshops. The duo were invited at TEDxZurichWomen in May 2015 to engage the TEDx audience around the theme of Momentum by inviting the guests to doodle their ideas into a giant portrait of Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean. Amelia said herself “The most effective way to do it, is to do it” and that’s at the heart of Collaborative Art experiences. “We often observe the false beliefs that people carry with them about their perceived artistic abilities. The magic, is seeing the doubt transform into pride at the end of the workshop when their masterpiece is revealed.” says founder, Steph Fonteyn. And it doesn’t end there. The art often continues to create a buzz in the corridors in the workplace, where the masterpiece proudly hangs for everyone to see, long after the event.

So, if you think you can’t too, we DARE you to try. You’ll be surprised!
