Boost your team’s PLAYING skills with a Social Sketchup!
Our Team Sketchups are lively and uplifting experiences designed to bring colleagues together to explore, express and share their creativity.
They unite people from all disciplines and levels of creative experience: including those who think they "can't draw”! Whether you're in Hospitality or Healthcare, Digital or Design: we believe EVERYONE CAN DRAW and benefit from of a dose of Sketchup!
Fees start from £250 based on 10 delegates. Contact us using the form at the bottom of this page to make an enquiry.
The Social Sketchup:
Gives people confidence to express and embrace their creativity
Liberates and quietens the mind through active meditation of drawing
Brings people together to connect and communicate in new ways, via observation, self-expression and collaboration
Sparks creative conversations and ideas
Leaves people buzzing with endorphins and the joy of SKETCH!
Feel the fear and draw it anyway!!
Armed with ideas, pencils and paper, we lure people out of their comfort zones and into the CREATIVE PLAY ZONE!
The focus of Sketchup is always on the creative process and NOT the end results - which makes it a refreshing change from working life! There is no 'right' way to draw - so there should be no fear of getting it 'wrong'!
Sketchup is a non-competitive experience and our activities are fun, easy and great levellers. We’ll get you drawing with your right hand, with your left hand, with your eyes closed… all of which takes the pressure off and switches your inner artist ON!
There are no team leaders or winners at Sketchup - and there are certainly NO RULES!
“Play is the highest form of research”

What to expect
A typical Sketchup lasts 2 hours, but can be timed to suit your needs.
All Sketchups start with a round of interactive warm-up challenges, similar to those we set at our public workshops. This usually includes experimental portraiture, collaborative games, dance-drawing and speed-sketching!
After this, you can choose either:
Custom/general sketching activities
Option 1: Zine-making
Working individually, you’ll create a mini 8 page zine that shows and tells others fun facts about you that they might not know.
It could be your (abridged!) life story, a visual CV featuring the first, worst and best bits of your career, or just a fun zine about something/s you love!
Alternatively, we could challenge your team to create zines themed around your business or products.
Option 2: Sketchworking
Everyone takes a turn to play Artist's Model and pose for the group to draw - and gets a stack of sketchy new business cards at the end!
Sitters also get to play Art Director and decide whether they'd like a set of regular (dominant hand) or experimental (non-dominant) portraits! They also get to pick the songs that play out as they pose, which can make for an eclectic soundtrack!
Option 3: General or Bespoke
If you'd just prefer a fun and interactive session full of short challenges and collaborative group work, then we'll deliver a classic Social Sketchup, featuring some of our favourite activities!
We can keep it general, or customise the challenges around your brand or specific skill you're looking to develop - e.g. leadership or self-esteem. We LOVE coming up with new ideas around a set theme, so get in touch if you'd like to see your business - and your team - come to life in new ways!
