Happenings at Violet Hive

At Violet Hive, we believe everyone is an artist and wish to bring art opportunities to the community through our Studios, Mobile Programming and Therapeutic Offerings. We are an Art Hive which means we are a part of a larger network of organizations committed to providing the community with more art opportunities. With that in mind we aim to design creative programming and to be a part of events in Denver and our neighborhood.

Programming for KIDS OF All-Ages

Is your child, preteen or teen struggling with some challenges that have nothing to do with their core subjects? We can help to support them. Our focus is exposing children and adolescents to different mediums and materials to build confidence and their creative abilities within a group of their peers from different schools. They can try things out and explore their authentic self.


Open Heart Art Studio

For our 6-9-years-olds is every Saturday, 10am-12pm


One of our very determined and talented participants Noah gave us permission to share his latest artwork. It was inspired by a favorite characters of his. He made this drawing and used the materials we had on hand creatively and flexibly to make his very own version. We are so proud of him and hwo much he has grown since we met him during a Parent's Night Off over a year ago.

School is back in session. How's it going? Does your school need a little more art or mindfulness programming? We are committed to working with schools to fill gaps in existing programming or adding to existing programming during or afterschool.


"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 sElf-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
