For this program, several large puzzle pieces will be provided by the artist (size and number to be determined by the organization and artist). Each piece will be custom designed and sized to fit the display wall or table. The pieces will be cut from wood, sanded and primed prior to the program by the artist.
Participants will each receive an individual puzzle. They will be presented with various materials for decorating the pieces (acrylic paint, collage supplies, stickers, markers, etc.) and instruction on using them. Participants are encouraged to express themselves and really make their pieces their own. They can decorate the pieces with images, words and phrases that represent them (musical instruments, pets, favorite foods, hobbies, interests, etc.). Their puzzle can have a theme/overall design or they may treat each piece as its own design. Once the pieces are complete and dry, the puzzle will be reassembled. Participants will keep their finished puzzle.

We will discuss our Collaborative Painting subject, materials and application. Each participant will be given equal square pieces of paper or small canvases. They will be assigned a specific area to paint that is a piece of the full image. Once everyone has completed their squares, we’ll work together to organize the participants’ creations into the final image. The assembled image can be hung at your company or organization.
The session will begin with an explanation of the exercise and materials. The participants will split into groups of 3. Each group receives one large canvas. They will work together to create a planning sketch for their painting.
