Mission & Values

Violet Hive ART COLLECTIVE uses mindfulness AND ART to support GROWTH and positive change

We believe that if you can choose a color and make a mark on a piece of paper you are an artist. That’s why we’re passionate about making art therapy more accessible to Denver and its surrounding communities. Violet Hive Art Collective is a community art and art therapy collective which combines nonprofit offerings and therapeutic services to serve individuals and families.


Collective Services

We offer A Spectrum of SERVICES, THAT range from art TO ART THerapY

We feel we are able to offer something to everyone so we describe our services as a Spectrum of Healing. From individual or group therapy, workshops focused on accessible art skills and mindfulness, or even mobile programming for your school or nonprofit/ corporate organization, you can choose the experience that is right for you!



News & Happenings


As a collective of artists, therapists, ad healers we are working to develop two main locations! Violet Hive Art Collective (Community Studio) is currently in Mariposa near the Santa Fe Art District. But we are still looking for our permanent home where we can offer ceramics and more but still running in studio and mobile programming. The Revival Project at Nurture a wellness or well-care collective (multiple types of health and wellness practitioners in one space) is opening in 2020 in the Highlands west of downtown at 29th and Federal. Over 100 practitioners will be offering a range of services. If you have feedback or looking for an offering that you would like to see please contact us.


New to Our Team

We are so happy to announce new members to our team this fall! First we would like to welcome Katelynn Dwyer the newest member of our Collective team to Violet Hive Art Collective and Denver. Hailing from New York, Katelynn just relocated to lead our Children and Youth Programming. We are so happy to now be able to offer programming again for ages 5-18 years old.


Katelynn Dwyer, MA, LCAT, ATR-BC, 200 E-RYT 
Board Certified Art Therapist, Licensed Creative Arts Therapist, and Registered Yoga Teacher
Community Studio, Santa Fe Art District + Nurture

I believe wholeheartedly in the cathartic process of finding oneself through the journey of Art Therapy. Whether one chooses to define themself as 'creative' or not, I believe that each and every one of us is the embodiment of creativity in some form. You deserve all that this universe has to offer - starting with yourself.
