Community ART & THERAPEUTIC Collective
Violet Hive Art is a community collective and 501(c)(3) nonprofit that mindfully provides art classes, studios, and therapeutic services. Our mission is to use art to support the people of Denver because art is inherently healing. Whether it is achieved through an art studio or therapy, we are excited to help you take care of your entire being and experience joy through authenticity .
FROM Art Education to Therapeutic services
A Spectrum of Healing
We describe our offerings as a Spectrum of Healing. You may engage in the form or level that is the best fit for you -- be it enrolling in a studio focused on accessible art skills, exploring energy work, designing a mobile programming track for your organization or engaging in individual or group therapy. Let the journey commence.
Art Therapy: Individual & Groups: Art therapy is an effective and alternative means of brain-body communication. We use psychological theory with visual arts to help clients express themselves nonverbally. It’s not about what you create -- it’s about the process you go through to create the art work and your experience with it.
On-site Art Studios and Programming for All Ages: We describe our art classes as studios involving “art as healing.” We believe that art is inherently healing and can take form indirectly while creating art and enjoying the finished product. Our intent is that you leave with important takeaways, inspiration and a new confidence around the art materials used.
Mobile Programming: Denver Schools (Public & Private) and Community Corporate and Nonprofit: We provide a memorable and engaging art experience that can be used for team building, self-care and enrichment opportunities for organizations. Our Community Impact Programming involves work with schools, libraries and other public organizations. Our Private Programming creates opportunities for corporate and nonprofit organizations to work with our staff and their team for growth.

"We were so grateful to have Violet Hive Art come to GALS and share some of what they do with schools (art for healing and slf-care). We had a great time engaging both art and conversation. The team is fun to be around and did an amazing job sharing the ways they work with youth by connecting and helping to build their resiliency as well as our own. We had fun and left feeling restored. Thank you!"
–Amber Brydon, School Psychologist
