The "quilt or mural" is then assembled by your teams and can be displayed back at the workplace or donated to shelters, hospitals or other sites.
This team building event involves creativity, leadership, strategic thinking, sequenced planning and communication. Mural Making is about Process, as much as art. Facilitators work with the teams to encourage them to think BIG.
The final product is a visual documentation of your team's understanding and awareness of the theme they have selected and the process through which they went.
Variations: Can be done with mixed media including found objects (recycle, reuse). Goal: Separate parts that add up to one vision! The Big Picture!
