It is proven that making art and being creative has a positive impact on individuals and can increase motivation, innovation and ideas.
I specialise in creative workshops that bring teams, communities and business together in dialogue. My workshops are for groups and perfect for team-building. Creativity Labs are a place to experiment, take risks, be innovative, think big and learn something new. And, of course, to have fun on the way.
Creativity Labs are designed to foster flexibility, collaboration and team spirit using art. They also give something back to valuable team members. Whether together in one room or online, experiencing art through a Creativity Lab is an innovative addition to team building and personal development.
“The workshop really moved something in me! Reflecting on my relationship to work was definitely very effective...the conversation at the end was also totally inspiring, so it was worth it!”
“It was really an unexpected experience. You really tapped into the creative part of our brains and managed to pull lots of ideas in such a short period of time. The task at the beginning difficult for me since it required to think outside of the usual patterns. Seeing the results showed how many different ideas we were able to generate as a team within such a short period of time. Again, I highly enjoyed it.”
“The entire program was wonderful. Freedom in design > different tools. The possibility to work with different materials and your positive, supportive attitude towards everyone.”
“The simplicity. Everything. Lightness. Inspiring. The connection between creativity/art and philosophy.”
“I loved the multifaceted approach, the variety of activities and the plenty of different materials as well as the joint creation of a mosaic picture and the overall creativity. Cherishing atmosphere.”
“The constructive workshop structure. From the charcoal (primal origin) to the words and texts, from each individual perception to the ‘we’.”
“The collage workshop was very inspiring! My friend and I went home full of enthusiasm and immediately put what we had learned into practice: we now paint and draw regularly. I would say: Mission accomplished!”
“Common ground. Team. A surprisingly intensive and impressive process. Time. Very exciting > group dynamic but also individual!”
“It was fun. The tasks were well structured. Coherently connected > I could try out a lot. Great structure, which led deeper and deeper into the topic. I was able to experience a process, to get a little more out of my head, I felt that I was allowing myself to paint more and more freely.”
Hi, I’m Penelope Richardson, a visual artist from Australia specialised in communication and cultural development. I’m also the founder of Fun Life Art. I’ve always had a passion for working with people with art and bringing art-making into unexpected contexts.
My purpose is to give people a positive experience of art. Through my workshops, I bring people and business together in a creative dialogue to support team-building, change and development in companies. It’s proven the valuable experience of participating in a creative activity can inspire a change of perspective and innovative approaches.
I invented the Creativity Lab format especially to bring art and business together. Also, I love working with people to provide inspiring and fun art experiences. Labs can include different art formats from painting, printmaking, and drawing to art collaborations, 3D projects, book design or video. Throughout my career, I’ve always made art. If you’re interested take a look at my artist website.
I aspire to share my creative impulse. As an artist, there is nothing I enjoy more than to take individuals and teams on a creative journey. I love it when my work sparks excitement, triggers motivation and provokes a creative approach.
Fun Life Art offers workshops for companies and groups in guided Creativity Labs and art workshops for team-building, change of perspective and team celebrations as well as Prosecco life-drawing events. What is otherwise usually only taught in art colleges and drawing schools, is packaged by the company into events and labs. Each course is individual, full of laughter and exciting dialogues. In a creative atmosphere, participants can devise their creations with real artist tools. The Australian artist Penelope Richardson, founder and owner of Fun Life Art, was awarded the Guide-Gründerpreis 2018 for her business idea in Munich.
