We focus on:
CHALLENGING THEMES and
Whether used as a main activity for social gatherings, employee retirement parties, or corporate team-building, etc., the customization of the art theme can dramatically increases the sense of shared challenge.
Additionally, creating art activities inspired by personal or business mission statements, logos and themes for wellness initiatives and fundraising activities can further strengthen collective bonds.
The applications are endless.
A precious moment of graceful harmony, beauty and form.

Celebration in December at Fred Astaire Dance Studio!
ART/WORKS/WONDERS and MAPSYS, INC. team up for a fun wrap to their sales and marketing meeting held at The Vue Columbus, an excellent venue perfectly adaptable for large meetings then transforming into a giant art studio where everyone joining the effort was rewarded with their very own painting "Above and Beyond"...a great way to end the corporate gathering on a HIGH NOTE!
On Wednesday June 22nd, I was asked to give a private one-on-one lesson PaintParty style with Yan Hong Wang, who is the sister of my acupuncturist, Dr. Nancy, from China.
Yan is an enthusiastic athlete and loves artistic pursuits, doing some traditional Chinese folk art with Sumi brushes on parchment, very controlled and methodical. Her sister Nancy is a big fan of PaintPartyColumbus and wanted Yan to have the PPC experience, which teaches form and color with no drawing at all, only paint and brush, a completely different approach for her to experience.
What was especially unique is Yan does not speak a word of English and of course, my Chinese language skills are non existent. I should mention also that Yan was the GOLD MEDAL WINNER at the 2004 Special Olympics in Athens for Archery!
We set up side by side at Dr. Nancy's office desk where I set the easels, brushes and plates with all the colors. What took place then was amazing! She followed my exact moves with mixing the colors, application of paint, choice of brushes as she was right next to me and could clearly see my demonstration. Within a few hours we completed the painting much to the delight of Dr. Nancy and her assistants.
When we are shown how to, in a close up real time environment, the results are quite remarkable. Here's to more cultural exchanges and good vibrations through the excitement of creativity!
We are sometims asked to create a special painting for a private party. The requests are so often very inspiring as we want to give the best opportunity for elegance and good taste as well as making the end result very appealing!.
Here is the latest request done for a small group in Gahanna. The hostess wanted this particular painting that consisted of five ladies all in the same pose.
This was a good study in every sense. The paintings that we bring to our social group painters the majority are totally original works designed to allow completion of a finished work in under 3 hrs. by our novice artist guests. But please bring any suggestion to us for your corporate team building event, birthday, bachelor, bachelorette party and we will be sure to create something delightful and fun. Bring it on, people!
Wow. Poor Jordan Speith! That's why they call it the MASTERS donchaknow! And all the while we were busy with three paintings for PPC, offering cupcakes, poppy fields and A FLORIDA KEYS BEACH! We like our inspiration in the wine and spirits category however these were done while running a DNA repair program with headphones....don't know if it helped, but what is help when we are talking art?
