 Pillars by Rosemary Covey    Mixed Media     In this team building exercise, participants come together to create a six foot pillar that can stand as a permanent structure in the lobby. Guided by the instructor, participants create designs using shapes and colors that represent their company. The designs are mounted on a concrete form that is lightweight, water resistant, and visually dramatic. No art background is necessary, just an open mind, a free imagination and a sense of fun.
