About Us

Violet Hive Art Collective is a community art and art therapy collective and aspects of our organization work to serve 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Because we know that the art process is inherently healing we mindfully provide art classes (art as healing studios) and therapeutic services to individuals and organizations. Through the art process individuals may engage in creativity and transformational experiences in a safe and non-judgmental environment. No matter if healing is achieved through an art as healing  studio or art therapy, we are passionately committed to support you in the exploration of learning to care for your entire being and experience joy and transformation.  We believe in the power of the human spirit and art’s ability to heal.

"Violet Hive is tucked into a cozy, comforting space, and offers Art Therapy to children, teens, adults and families. What is Art Therapy, you ask? Do you have to be an accomplished artist to benefit? NO-- Art Therapy is for EVERYONE (especially children who may have trouble expressing their feelings in words, and anyone who may have built communication barriers because of past traumas or events). 

But wait, you say! I don't have any issues... I'm as well-adjusted as they come! Violet Hive is for YOU TOO... because alongside the Art Therapy, they offer group art classes, workshops, and events… I can't recommend this place enough. Art can, and should be for EVERYONE. However, not all of us have the resources, the space, or the materials at home to create everything we wish we could. Art is good for your mind, body, and soul... so go heal yourself at Violet Hive! You can thank me later." -KYM GaNeLES, ARTIST AND PARENT
