…is making their way to our studio for our wonderful events.  

So you probably should, too. A team that laughs together is such a beautiful thing!

When we play, we are engaged in the purest expression of our humanity, the truest expression of our individuality.

Have a great team and want to create something playful together?

We host fabulous team building sessions for corporate events, women’s night out's, and on location wherever you may be. We host these brilliant soirees in our studio by Granville Island - and larger groups (up to 100) in a stunning space in Olympic village overlooking False Creek. We also create extended Art retreats for corporations in Whistler. This is what we love to do and we do it so beautifully with the happiest vibes, creative fun and tons of pizzazz.

The corporate group that we brought into the Luminous Elephant is very diverse... people of all ages and stages of their careers. None of us have any solid creative skills but we like to take on new challenges. Maddie was so positive and welcoming when we arrived and was a pleasure to work with. Carla and Sara were fabulous instructors, put up with our crazy questions and lack of abilities, and they took the time to really work with us one-on-one as we painted. The studio is bright and so inviting. Thanks again for everything, we had so much fun and we will definitely be back!!
— Jessica, Vancouver Canucks, Community Partnerships
