Our Mission & Values

Violet Hive Art uses mindfulness AND ART to support healing and positive change

We are a community art and art therapy collective that supports 501(c)(3) nonprofits. In our work we partner with organizations to collaborate and bring art programming to those that they serve. Because we know that the art process is inherently healing we mindfully provide art programming (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 supporting an exploration of learning to care for your entire being and the experience of joy and transformation.

A Spectrum of Healing FROM Art AS HEALING to ART THERAPY

We describe our offerings as a Spectrum of Healing. At our studio 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 mindfulness, engaging in individual or group therapy, or even designing a mobile programming track for your school or nonprofit/ corporate organization.



Happenings & Studio Spotlight


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.



Send your pre-teen artist to the Violet Hive In-between Art Studio. This time period for this age group can be tough. It can be hard to still want to play but also start to take more accountability and explore identity. 

This is an intentionally created space for your pre-teen to make art and be themselves. The studio will be held and supported by Art Therapists and the studio will involve a variety of materials (painting, fiber arts, 3-D Junk Art and more)

adult programming

At Violet Hive we believe that art and mindfulness go hand in to bring about healing and transformation in your life. Art Therapy and Art Studios are not just for kids and you do not have to be an artist to participate! We believe that the process and participation are where the magic happens! Check out our new programming and come spend time with yourself and with our team that is over the moon to bring you our programming.

revival art + energy series

We all struggle with anxiety, depression, judgment of self or others. The problem is this often results in separation from love, passion, and fulfillment. This also leaves us feeling out of alignment with who we want to be. We understand and created this studio with these things in mind. Through this studio we will build on skills for self-care and will address these areas of life for transformation. Many of these skills will be achieved through working with art, the chakras, mindfulness, a renewed connection with yourself, emotions, and healing through art.


Each quarter we will offer a 3-week intensive exploration studio as part of the Revival Art + Energy series, we will go deeper and explore mindfulness, connecting with self, psycho-education, and healing through art. You will learn how to think about self-care differently, bring intention to the energy in your body, support yourself with art, and cultivate the passion you wish to see in your life. To register you will purchase a package for this 3-part class. Next Session starts this Thursday, January 10th.


In our 1-day intensive studio, get an introduction to going deeper. Revival Art + Energy will explore three aspects of our energy power centers: the chakras, mindfulness, connecting with self and emotions and healing through art. You will learn how to think about self-care differently, bring intentional attention to the pathways of energy in your body, support yourself with art from your intuition, and cultivate the passion you wish to see in your life.  You are a perfect participant if you are willing to explore and be open to more! Or if you feel you have gotten out of alignment with the woman you want to be. This can jump-start an opening for change. To register you will purchase a studio session.
Next Studio TBD.
