Imagine a group portrait painting activity led by a professional artist in the forest  What would it be like to come across a magician in the woods as he makes the impossible real?  Is that a violin and cello playing a duet in a cave?  What's up with that banjo playing yonder up the hollow?  Our guides are also artists, magicians and musicians!


1)  Artist led portrait painting in the forest, at a cabin or anywhere

Add an artist led group painting event at your cabin or in the forest.  Each painter receives step-by-step instruction on an individual or group canvas.  The subject is chosen in advance.   Multi-canvas and large canvas options are presented at team building events.  The artist creates a sketch based on your preferences and prepares teh canvas in advance.  On the day of the event, guests paint individual portraits or as small teams on larger canvas panels. Company logos, themes and objectives can be incorporated or a single object or scene can be provided for everyone to paint individually.  Kids can join parents and help with the family's canvas. 

Setup, clean up, instruction and all of the materials needed are provided including easels, drop cloth, paints, brushes and canvas.

3)  Carroll Baker ~ Magician:
​Add magician, Carroll Baker to the mix and see what happens next!  What fun it is to encounter him on the trail. With over 28 years of experience, Carroll Baker is an amazing magician.  Self taught and a student and historian of magic, he creates events that draw from over 5,000 tricks running around in his head.  His interactive magic gets group members involved in uniquely impossible ways.  


Carroll's advanced planning process gathers cultural background and points of emphasis that you'd like to incorporate and delivers an event that highlights your objectives...or just entertains.  In one example, imagine his magic helping new members of the team gain confidence as they figure out "who they need to trust the most ".

4) Enjoy John Cooper as Abraham Lincoln

Residing in Baltimore, Ohio, Mr. Cooper portrays Abraham Lincoln at public and private events all over Ohio. He's a father of four and retired after 32 years at the Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC). He began portraying the late president about 25 years ago while his children were in elementary school. A co-worker at DSCC constantly maintained that he reminded her of Abraham Lincoln due to his tall stature and Lincoln-styled beard. He discovered an old Lincoln-styled coat in his mother's attic, acquired a stovepipe hat, and began impersonating around President's Day at local schools.

A self-avowed history nut, John considers Lincoln his favorite president and the greatest in U.S. history. He says the toughest part of portraying a dead historical figure is remaining in character and time period when many audience questions refer to matters that cannot be discussed without references to events and facts that were not known until after Lincoln's assassination.
