This creative problem solving activity is a great fast paced and hands on game where attention to detail is the key to the guests success. As the trainer you will need to select a piece of art or imagery before the meeting, print it out and cut it into as many pieces as there are guests in the meeting. Something like the Picasso painting shown here is ideal as although there is a lot of detail in the painting the guests will be able to re-create the lines and colours.
Once you have printed out and cut the image into pieces hand the individual pieces out to your guests and inform them that they now need to replicate their individual piece into a larger scaled drawing and once all pieces have been completed the group must put them all together to complete the finished bigger picture.
If you printed the original image out on to A4 then tell the guests that they need to scale their drawings up by 5 or 10 times the size that they have in front of them. The more space they use on their drawing the better so you will just need to work out the scale depending on the paper size that you have.
