Skills Converged > Art Exercise: Cooperative Sculpture

Skills Converged > Art Exercise: Cooperative Sculpture | Serious Play | Scoop.it

This exercise helps delegates work together to create a sculpture out of clay. It is ideal for classes on ceramics hand building with clay but it can also be used for a fun team building activity.

This is also a very useful exercise for creativity as it is relatively fast paced. Delegates have little time to get carried away with too much detail on any specific work and so are forced to express their creativity in a focused and meaningful way.

In this exercise, delegates contribute to each other’s design sequentially and everyone participates in the creation of all sculptures.

Skills Converged > Illustration Exercise: Collective Masterpiece

"Use this exercise to get a group of people work on a common illustration exercise. This can be used as an icebreaker to make the group feel more comfortable with each other and also assess the competency of each person in drawing or painting. The group’s work leads to a final piece that everyone has equally contributed to which can then be kept to represent the class for future sessions or even to show off to external visitors. This exercise scales up quite easily for a large group as well, so it is ideal if you have a large audience and want to engage them in an illustration activity."

Team-building activities typically require a lot of equipment or even a rigorous physical course. However, a simple deck of cards can be used to generate many team-building activities that facilitate respect for team members, cooperation toward a common goal and a cohesive work environment. Best of all, using a deck of cards makes these activities convenient and inexpensive.

Think! Team Building Challenge | Walking by the Way | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Think! Team Building Challenge


What is it? It's a chance for students to problem solve, to think creatively, to build, and to use teamwork skills! 

Each week students received a stack of supplies and one basic instruction (such as construct a large tower . . . as tall as possible).


This class will bring out the builder in every participant while sharpening the ability to problem-solve and developing team work. Each week the students will receive building materials and project specifications without any instruction of HOW to do it. They will have to flex their brain muscles in order to complete the assigned constructions.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

You can download the syllabus and a rough outline of the class.
