Corporate Team-Building Events

Painting parties are an excellent way to inspire communication, encouragement and teamwork among coworkers or team members.

Thirsty Palette is quickly becoming the premier event space to host corporate team-building painting parties!

We offer two separate kinds of team-building painting parties, either of which can take place in our studio or offsite at your company or another event space:

Individual Paintings – Similar to our other private parties, where an artist instructs the party step by step on how to complete the selected painting. Custom paintings may be requested!

Mural Paintings – Takes the words “team-building” to another level, as 5 to 10 people at a time will take turns creating your company’s newest masterpiece! Before the party, the party’s artist will sketch your design to your satisfaction, and once approved, will transfer it onto the mural. After 2-3 hours of team painting, your mural may be proudly hung in your company’s lobby, conference room, lunch room or anywhere else in your office!

Corporate team-building painting parties are becoming more and more popular because they:

  • make great staff rewards
  • are a great way to turn office strangers into painting partners
  • inspire creativity, comradery and fun around the workplace
  • gives new employees something in common to talk about with their new team
  • result in a truly unique piece of art that everyone played a role in creating

Ladies Night Out

Because sometimes you don’t need a reason to get together with friends other than wanting to have a great time!

So it’s nobody’s birthday. And none of your friends are having a baby or getting married anytime soon.

So what! That doesn’t mean you and your friends can’t still enjoy a memorable ladies night out together!

Did you know Thirsty Palette can host a private party for literally any occasion, including a simple get-together with friends? And if you don’t have enough people for a private event, you can always schedule a ladies night out any time on our painting party calendar.

A private ladies night out event allows you to request a custom painting to celebrate your event. Or, of course, you can choose from dozens of our most popular paintings to paint and take home with you.

And the best part about a ladies night out at Thirsty Palette is you can keep the party going as long as you want. Our bar includes top-shelf liquors, wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks, so there is no need to go bar hopping after your painting party.

When is the last time you and all of your friends got together for ladies night? Whether it’s been a long time or you are just looking for something new and fresh to do together, contact us for more information about a ladies night out!
