Ideas are all around us but very often we prefer to just go with the flow. This might be because it is easier to make things on the usual way, or because we have stuck in our daily routine. Whatever the reason is, it blocks our creativity.
Do you want to wake up your inspiration and bring your creativity back?
Our programmes are here to help you:
„From the single tree to the whole forest” Programme
It includes short creativity boosting sessions through art appreciation. We offer them in two formats – one-to-one and group activities.
The goal of the Programme is to help you to break with stereotypes, to go out of routine and monotonous approaches to tasks and to make new connections between single elements (trees) and the ‘big picture’ (the forest).

It is suitable for people who feel stuck in monotonous ideas and tedious and routine tasks and want to boost their creativity and critical, out-of-the-box and associative thinking. As well as for those who want to learn how to find new and flexible approaches to everyday problems in work and life.
The Programme is also suitable for teams that want to experiment with finding new solutions to daily problems and to search new ways to work with their colleagues and clients.
What do we do during the sessions?
- Brief amusing art history reviews of 2 to 3 thematically selected artworks, their authors, movements and styles.
- Entertaining games what we ‘observe’ and what we see ‘see’ in one artwork.
- Solving puzzles and other games for comparison between the presented artworks, with a focus on comparing and contrasting the works.
- Amusing group activities for improving presentation, communication and sales skills in non-conventional work environment, which stimulates creative, out-of-the-box and associative thinking and allows learners to go out of the daily work routine.
- Focused discussions how all these are linked with our everyday lives and with our work activities, so to be more creative and successful when approaching daily tasks in our usual routine and as members of work teams.
UPON REQUEST: we could add practical creative activities like making thematic collages and compositions, doing visual and narrative storytelling, etc.
What will you receive at the end of the sessions?
- You go out of the ‘first sight’ routine and start to provoke yourself for searching new connections and associations beyond usual things and patterns.
- You learn how to take a critical look, to be innovative and to break with stereotypes, so to unlock your creativity and out-of-the-box thinking.
- Work teams go out of routine and well-known approaches to tasks and unlock their spirit of creativity. Their members start to be more innovative and break with stereotypes in their daily activities.
- Through analysing different elements of an artwork, you ‘see’ your colleagues and the other people in a new way and learn how to interlink different sides and see the whole picture in each situation.
