- There’s No Pressure
There are several well-meaning team building events putting people on the spot to answer questions. Others entail lots of physical activity.

Painting is a great activity because it’s comfortable for any personality type. Come Paint With Us recognizes that some people get nervous about how their painting is coming along. There are no expectations; just relax and enjoy the process!
- It Attracts Prospective New Employees
Painting classes are a creative means of showing employees you care about their well-being. Publicizing photos of the team building painting class on Facebook, Instagram, and your company website shows job candidates your company values its employees.
