This blog is for the brilliant, fun and enthusiastic employees at NewCorp in Burnaby, BC where I had the honor to join them for a staff painting party and facilitate some acrylic painting! My intention was for them to have fun and get a bit messy. What can I say I'm a fan of splattering paint around! Mission was definitly accomplished!
I figured they could 'pull' any photos off of themselves that they liked and that it would be a great memory to come back to. I mean, have you ever heard of a corporation letting their employees take time off, buying them a bunch of canvases and cool acrylic paint colours, and letting them get creative for a few hours with pizza and tunes for a few hours? Man, this company seems very progressive. thanks so much for having me - special thanks for Traci for organizing.
Starting out with clean white canvases, things changed pretty quickly.
Looking down on the beginnings of a few masterpieces!
All different paintings began to emerge quite quickly!
Keep noticing that little landscape painting!
Watch for this landscape painting in further pictures. I swear thsi guy must have watched a ton of Bob Ross Videos! He had finished a beautiful landscape piece by the end of our session!
Keep noticing the little landscape painting in the corner.
Happy colours painting!
What great memories. Beautiful people in their creative groove!
Our fabulous man in black, Darren!
Mr. "School of hard knocks" dripping his painting over the garbage can!!!
Every one worked on 1-2 little 10 x 10" canvases.
Scroll down to see these flowers evolve later. The Artist did a beautiful job!
Garbage bags made excellent painting aprons!
My goal is achieved, things are getting messy now!!!
First set of paintings were put under the table to dry as they started their second canvas.
A Jackson Pollock drip painting emerged!
The group painting kept evolving! It was the star of the painting show. So much fun watching everyone get so involved!
Thank you so much for having me out for the afternoon NewCorp Burnaby!!!
