What makes The Hive art classes SPECIAL and GREAT?

Small class sizes mean lots of individualized attention and instruction.

Classes held among real working artist studios benefit from the atmosphere and energy of a vibrant art studio.

The Hive Artists’ Hub Society strives to promote local art and artists and supports the local art community. And since its proceeds from sales and classes are used in achieving this goal, when you buy products made at The Hive and register in its art classes and workshops you are actually helping the whole community!

The Hive offers reasonable fees and special rates, as well as maintains some subsidized spots in the children’s art classes, which means that art experiences are accessible to more people, and more children can benefit from art education.

The Hive art classes are fun!

Are there introductory DEALS?


Hive members will always receive a $10 discount on all art classes. Also, to celebrate this introductory season of art classes, The Hive is offering an exceptionally great “Bring-A-Buddy” discount on all classes! Register for an art class, and a friend/sibling registering for the first time will receive a 50% discount!
