The Venue

Paint a Pot Party

 An art-themed holiday party requires a   creative space. Look for venues that   inspire creativity, such as art galleries,   studios or even local art shops.

 A place with good natural light is ideal as   many art activities require well-lit, bright   spaces. Ensure the space has ample   seating, tables, and other necessary   equipment.

 Working with a professional art studio as   your host can provide an appropriate space and art supplies like paints, paint brushes, canvases or paper, sculpting clays, woodworking supplies, and many more!

The Activities

The right activities are key to the success of an art party! Ensure there’s something for everyone. Consider organizing painting or pottery classes led by local artists at a local studio or gallery.

Not into painting or pottery? Try a group woodworking or glass activity to keep your hands busy while you chat with co-workers.

Alternatively, hire a professional calligrapher to teach the art of hand lettering or sign painting. Think outside the box and make it exciting for all!

The Theme

 Choosing the right theme is   essential to create the art-filled   ambiance. Your theme should   inspire creativity and bring   everyone together.

 Depending on your budget and   the interests of your employees,   you can try several different   themes, such as "Winter   Wonderland," "Watercolor Christmas Tree," or "Red and Green Gatsby." With the right music and decorations, your guests will feel excited as if they're in a painting!

The Food and Drinks

You can’t forget the food and drinks! Check with the venue if they provide catering options. Otherwise, consider hiring food trucks or beverage carts for a unique culinary experience.

For a more traditional setup, opt for a buffet with festive-themed snacks like gingerbread cookies, candy canes, and eggnog cocktails.

The food is an excellent way to boost enthusiasm and keep the energy levels high!

The Take-Home Tokens

 The best part of an art-themed holiday party is the         takeaway tokens that commemorate the event.   Consider gifting customized ceramic mugs, tote bags,   or even calligraphed stationery.
