What is Art In Mind?

Art in mind is a versatile creativity development program that revolves around the creation of a Team Mural / Artwork which is conceptualised, developed and created by the participants, bringing to life a goal, be that a mission statement, value, ethos, strategy or simply to have a fun and engaging experience.

Our vision is to deliver an innovative and practical learning experience which builds confidence, communication and collaboration through creativity.

"We had a fantastic team building day with Phelim from Brushstrokes Art. We set the goals our team wanted to achieve and Phelim expertly kept us to them! We have been to team building events before but this was the only occasion where we actually emerged stronger, more respectful, understanding and strategic. We have been able to use our new skills on a daily basis and our team is more harmonious in its internal and external interactions."

It helps to develop creative thinking processes, build effective communication and collaboration skills and improve teamwork among employees / collegues which is crucial to business and personal success through whole brain thinking and practise. On its own, right brain creative thinking and practise is powerful but when combined with left brain logic and organisation makes it a very potent force.

Art is an ideal flexible tool for team building and training. Our activities:

- engage the brain, body and emotions

- are enjoyable but effective

- work well for both men and women of all abilities

- are infinititely adapatable and can target specific issues

- are cost effective

- inspire, motivate and satisfy.

It can be structured to suit your needs, budget and timescale.

“With ‘creativity’ it is not necessarily and only about the end product but also the journey. It can teach us so much about ourselves allowing us to question, explore, experiment, engage and develop, and move in directions we hadn’t considered or thought possible.” Phelim Donfield, Director AiM.-
