LATE NITE ART (2-3 hrs)
A creative capstone experience for trainings, retreats, and conferences
For: Corporate Teams, Conferences, and Universities
Our signature workshop uses collaborative art-making, curated music, and facilitated dialogue to foster a creative, energetic culture inside your team or organization. Whether using us for team building, visioning, or celebrating accomplishments, each event is tailored to meet the needs of your organization. Often paired with wine and a 3-course meal, LATE NITE ART can be easily woven into the programming of larger events, and used as the capstone experience for staff retreats, conferences, and off-site trainings.
Community Events (3.5 hrs)
Part social art party, part gourmet pop-up dinner
Our community events explore provocative topics and turn strangers into friends. Hosted at rotating venues, participants gather around the table to share a delicious three-course meal and build off each other’s ideas using paint, stories, and meaningful conversations. At the end of the evening, an impressive art piece is created which visually captures the experience and mark of each person. At LATE NITE ART you don't need to be able to color within the lines - you just need an open mind.
