Drawing stimulates and engages the mind. It fosters collaboration, communication, and creativity within a group. Here are some ideas for including drawing in your team building event.
Drawing as a tool for visual thinking
It is a form of creative expression that involves the use of various tools, such as pencils, pens, charcoals, pastels, inks and much more. It can be a wonderful form of visual communication and can be experimented with in different styles and techniques.
Whether you’re drawing from a real subject or a reference image, look closely at the details and plan your drawing before beginning. You can make preliminary sketches or light guidelines to define the composition.
Don’t let the fact that you are not a professional artist scare you. Team building aims to generate ideas, communicate, and solve problems.
There is no need to worry about the yardstick used to evaluate your work based on traditional beauty standards. Whether colorful or ugly, the key is that the pictures convey a thought or an idea.
With design techniques such as the cross stretch, the shaded stroke, the use of points or broken lines, you can express profound concepts.
Shadows and highlights are critical elements in making your drawing more realistic and three-dimensional. Look carefully at the darkened and lighted areas in your reference image and try to recreate those effects.
It’s an opportunity to express your creativity. Don’t be afraid to experiment, try out different techniques, or add your personal touch. Let your imagination run wild and have fun in the process.
Techniques for team building teamwork
There will be the option to create a collective design project where each team member contributes to the final design. For example, you could draw a puzzle, breaking the task into sections. Collaboration and the creation of common artwork will be promoted as a result.
The group will be divided into mini-groups and each team will be assigned an image or subject to draw on drawing paper. Participants will have to work together to create the final image. This activity encourages communication, teamwork, and mutual trust.
The main objective is to encourage collaboration, communication, and creativity, creating an enjoyable and meaningful experience for all participants.
Remember that sketching is a personal and subjective experience. There are no hard and fast rules, so experiment and find your own unique style. Happy drawing!!
