If you are looking for a unique team building idea, or an innovative way to bond with your clients, then Oya Art's corporate paint events are for you!
They offer a fun, interactive and totally creative experience where the ice gets well and truly broken and everyone connect through the medium of art.
Painting is a great way for people to escape from the solitude of remote working. These sessions are designed to bring people together and reinstate the sense of a team that may have been lost due to COVID19.
Although the team may be working on their individual paintings from the comfort of their own homes, the sessions allows everyone to interact with their team mates, cheer them on and get involved with some good old fashioned office banter.
I will turn your team into a bunch of Picasso's! It is easier than you think and it really is true what they say, "Everyone can paint!"
All the classes are easy to follow, relaxed, fun and extremely rewarding. I explain the reasoning behind each step so that everyone understands the composition behind their painting.
I have a track record of working with people who have never picked up a paintbrush in their lives and are now painting for fun in their spare time! You don't have to take my word for it, check out these reviews!
No one work environment is the same, as every team has it's own individual needs. You may be an old team, who have worked together before, a brand new team, or just looking for a way to break the ice with a new client. Whatever your situation, I have a class to suit.
My packages are flexible and can be tailored to fit your needs and situation. I can run them virtually on Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Go to meeting or Facebook Live. Whatever works for you, I can make it happen.
The events are two hours long with a few short breaks to check on progress, but more importantly to refill those glasses!
During the breaks I go over any bits that people may be struggling with and show them the artistic techniques needed to create their masterpiece.
I mute sessions to limit background noise, but I encourage people to either unmute themselves and ask questions or post a question in the chat throughout the session. For those who are a bit more on the shy side, I provide my mobile number so you can WhatsApp me whilst you are painting so that I can provide feedback on the go.
I will send out a bespoke Oya Arts Kit to all individual employees’ homes . This will include a canvas, paintbrushes, a paint palette and a set of acrylic paints!
Online classes are £30 per person, minimum of 20 people – Maximum 60 people. This includes all materials.
A maximum of 60 people enables me to interact with the group more effectively.
50% non-refundable deposit payable upon confirmation of the event to secure the date.
Final numbers and balance payable 7 days prior to the event.

"Having never painted before I was nervous about attending a class, but it was absolutely fantastic and I will definitely return! Karen made me feel very welcome and gave me lots of confidence and expert advice in such a relaxed, creative atmosphere. I am so pleased with my finished painting and thoroughly enjoyed the session.."
Kerline from Canada
"I've always been interested in painting but I assumed it was something difficult. Oya Arts has showed me that anyone can learn to paint. She is patient, thorough and very encouraging. At first I honestly wanted to give up because everyone in the class seemed to be more advanced, but she pushed and encouraged me to keep painting. Thanks to her I have an art piece that I can be proud of and a new hobby!"
Jill from America
"What a wonderful painting session. Having never painted before, Karen’s instructions were very clear. Karen was very helpful all the way through when any student had a question. Lots of great paintings were produced at the end of the session. Highly recommend Karen who was friendly and a genuinely lovely person to interact with."
